From when we first started this project in mid-July 2011 until the end of December, we made 2,800 dirhams (£215) from selling donated clothes.
This is what we’ve done with it:
We gave 2,000 dirhams to the Association ‘Au Coeur de l’Amitie’ Essaouira, a great little charity that feeds and provides after-school activities (including homework support) for 52 disadvantaged kids.
We have also given 800 dirhams to Halima, a local single mother with 6 children, who is really struggling – she has had very little work over the last few months and this donation will help her pay her rent over the next 3 months.
A big thanks to everyone who has donated clothes etc, and to the guest houses and hotels who are supporting the campaign.
