RareBear Ladies

RareBear Ladies

Personal message

My name is Megan & I run the Rare Bear Project, a CSI initiative of Rare Diseases SA.

I am raising funds for the ladies living in KyaSands township, who are the ones who make all the gorgeous crochet creations for our project. These ladies are not getting paid at all during lockdown, & yet are still trying to support their families & loved ones. Very often they are the only breadwinners in the families, & they all have children that rely on them.

Reaching this target will mean that the ladies can continue to buy food & necessities, as well as hand sanitizer as there is only one tap for the entire township. This coronavirus is a very scary time for them & their families, & I just want to be able to keep them as safe as possible.

Funds will be used for food, nappies & baby formula, hand sanitizer, wet wipes, & toys for the children to keep them entertained during lockdown.
