SELF HELP AFRICA, THE CHARITY WHICH ORIGINATED IN HACKETSTOWN, LAUNCHES ITS CHRISTMAS APPEAL
With the countdown to Christmas now well underway, seasonal shoppers in Carlow are being invited to give gifts that can have a lasting impact, both at home and amongst some of the poorest communities in the world.
As we turn our thoughts in this most challenging year to the festive presents we’ll purchase for our nearest and dearest, Irish aid charity Self Help Africa is inviting people to consider going truly ‘virtual,’ with thoughtful gifts that can also be transformational for families in Africa.
The charity was set up by Hacketstown priest, Eoin Lambert and was based in the County Carlow town for many years.
With the coronavirus pandemic pushing more and more of our buying online, Self Help Africa has stocked it’s ‘Lifetime Gifts’ web shop with a range of great products that provide thoughtful gift cards and e-cards for the friends and relatives you’re buying for, while delivering real, potentially life-changing benefits to African people in need.
