Well I am delighted to let you know our package to Tanzania has been received – despite 9 weeks, 6 weeks being in Customs, money exchange for paying the customs ticket and Amani losing the internet for the past three days we are there!!!! It has taught me patience and that everythign happens eventually! How interesting working with other countries this process is – but at least we know now and we are shipping again next week to Tanzania for the boys – at least we know what to expect!
We began with donations for material – both material donated and funds to buy from the Lincraft sale – you might remember this photo
Then we got sewing 🙂 all the lovely ladies at my place … busily sewing dresses …. it was a hot day in January but heaps of fun too
Once they were ready we shipped the parcel off and it arrived intact thankfully to Tanzania where it took a vacation of 6 weeks in Customs. Finally released …. Money paid for the release ticket and then it arrived into Amani Orphanage Tanzania
and a colouring book – from Merrilyn
Thanks to Merrilyn, Becc and Kristy for these fabrics!!
The littlest girls received a purse, play jewellery and some goodies in the bags
Thanks to Merrilyn and Libby for these fabrics
Each girl received a pendant and a pair of undies, a colouring book and cards from school Kids
So I will leave you with the excited girls and Gideon who helped make it all happen
Thank you to everyone for your amazing support:
- To the people who donated funds and fabric
- To the sewers
- To our families
- To our contacts and friends
We made a difference together
One girl at a time – simple really – but wow!
