Christmas Giving 2020 (Part 3!)

Mon, 23/12/2019 - 10:25am

More news!

For the 16th year running each member of our team gets to spend £200 of company profits on good gifts at Christmas.

We are donating funds to look after four abandoned children in India or Africa for a month and two ‘school mothers’ to help walk girls to school in Africa.

We have supported the ‘Knit for Peace’ project, an initiative of the Charities Advisory Trust. In the Middle East, knitting and crochet bring together different communities, across ethnic and religious boundaries. The plan is to form parallel projects in Jordan and the Palestinian Authority, with local leadership.

We have provided a bike for use in an Indian slum, to help someone get to work or school. We are also helping women in India and South Africa start earning money from craft businesses and form co-operatives to support each other.

We have provided a year’s schooling for two children in Africa and two months of support for an Indian street child in the form of warm meals, learning and mentoring.

We are providing African villagers with 7 solar lamps, which are cleaner and cheaper than the kerosene ones normally used.

 

Christmas Giving 2020 (Part 4!)

The final details..

Christmas is almost upon us and this is my final update on IS Oxford's Christmas Giving.

For the 16th year running each member of our team gets to spend £200 of company profits on good gifts at Christmas.

We are paying for the delivery of 600 warm knitted items to Syrian and Iranian refugees to help them during the cold winter in Kurdistan camps.

We are also supplying 5 village loos in Sierra Leone, 7 drip irrigation systems and one deep pump for African villagers.

We have provided three goats for families in war torn regions. Goats are milk and fertiliser factories, improve local diets and help towards self-sufficiency.

We are also providing 70 mango trees, which ensure crops that are delicious, reliable, drought-resistant and will provide income for generations. And apparently they look terrific...

Merry Christmas everyone!
