Charity looking for cloth nappies.

Postby ladybird » Thu Jun 10, 2010 12:05 pm

I've received a letter from a charity called Freed (UK) (charity no. 1116024) who are based in Northampton (so fairly local to me). They are working to improve rural facilities in the west of Ghana and work with an orphanage in Jirapa. The lady who has written to me is visiting the orphanage later in the year and is looking for donations of cloth nappies for the children there. The website is http://www.freeduk.org

Oooo I'm sure I have some I could spare that aren't going to be worth the effort of selling, thanks for the link!

Don't know if I'm being blind but I looked at the site and can't find any info, it says something about a donation sheet, but I can't find it!

There are some names on the contact page on the site. I've got contact details for a teenager who is going out there voluntarily later in the year. I've just phoned and am waiting for her to phone me back regards putting her details out on the forum.

I can definitely find a couple of nappies - I spent 3 months in Ghana doing voluntary work when I graduated from Uni, so this is close to my heart :)
