Trochet (local)

Thank you everyone, for your encouraging words about the article! Now, there's a short video too!

*Do note that the ladies are covered in the video, but they are not dressed like that while they work, as they are in the privacy of other women.

If you'd like to help and are not sure what to do, don't fret! You will soon! For now, just hold on to those plastic bags! 

Book Collection for Algerian Action (local, inernational and online)

Emma of Algerian Action is collecting books for a travelling library in Algiers, for children in hospitals, orphanages and various community venues. What a noble cause! Do you have new or gently used children's books that you'd like to donate? The books should be suitable for children between the ages of 0 and 14 and can be in English or Arabic. There is a link on her website for the address in the UK to post to, or a contact number if you are in Algiers. 
But if you are in Jeddah, you may drop me an email (fruitfulfusion AT live DOT co DOT uk) to arrange a drop off or pick up. 
Farhana of Sketched Soul, over in Canada, is also collecting funds to puchase books, so you can take a look if you'd like to donate that way. 
Algerian Action has a Wish List on Amazon, so you could donate the books that they need in a few clicks!
Don't forget that if you are in Jeddah and would like to donate books, perhaps Arabic books in particular, get in touch!

That is just amazing! The finished products are so beautiful - it's hard to believe that they are made from plastic.
