Our Mission Statement

Wanjoki Connection - Action Request

Christmas Help Project, 2013

   Jambo/hello to all our friends and supporters.  As we prepare for Christmas here in Canada we are receiving news from Kenya of hard times for two of the women there who work with us in both Forest Peoples' Crafts, our registered Fair Trade shop in The Forks Market, and in our poverty action group Wanjoki Connection.

   One of these women has recently been diagnosed with cancer.   She has very expensive treatments facing her.   The other one, also a single mom, lost her cow when it died giving birth.   She depended on that cow to help feed her children and grandchildren.   Both are in urgent need of small donations to get them through these crises and continue their productive lives.

   Please help with your contribution that you can bring to Pauline at the shop, upstairs in The Forks Market, or mail to Forest Peoples' Crafts, #226 One Forks Market Road, Winnipeg, R3C 4L9.   If you like, you can include your e-mail address with your donation and we will keep you posted on this project as results are achieved in helping these women in need.
