Support provided to Self Help Africa's shops networks enables the charity to support women like Susan Kamau in Kenya to become food secure. The local Self Help Shop on Main street Tipperary town is appealing for donations.
The organisation is asking people doing a wardrobe tidy to consider donating items to it’s shop to help support it’s work.
Children’s clothing is especially welcome as are adult clothes, toys books, bric-a-brac or other bits and pieces that are in need of a new home.
The Self Help Africa shop on Main Street in Tipperary town will welcome any contributions of worn but not worn out goods to help in raising much needed funds for its development projects in Africa.
National retail manager Maggie Dwyer says that every €30 that is raised by the local shop at Main Street is enough to set a rural poor family in Africa on the path to self-sufficiency.
Self Help Africa has more than 20 retail shops across the island of Ireland and is currently implementing development projects in 17 countries across the globe. The organisation, which merged with Gorta a number of years ago, is one of Ireland’s leading overseas aid organisations.
