Now is a really busy time for Algerian Action, our Eid appeal is well underway and lots of fabulous items are being donated for children in need. One shipment of Eid gifts and clothes has already been sent over and we plan to send another two before the end of Ramadan.

If you would like to help us make children smile this Eid ul fitr we would love to hear from you! We need donations of sweets, small toys, balloons and clothing which will all be given as gifts to children that have very little.

Of course, all of our other projects are ongoing and lots of gorgeous things have been donated to those too, in particular some lovely things for our ‘Baby pack project’ and some beautiful knitwear.


It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to get my sewing machine out but, these gorgeous dresses donated by Carole have really inspired me to make some time…..

Just to remind you, in a couple of weeks it is small charity week and we will be participating by holding an online Auction which will raise money for our food aid programme.


Lots of lovely things have already been donated to the Auction including a stunning candle set from this talented Henna artist.

      Hi Debra,
      It would be fantastic if you could donate something to our Auction!!!
      A cushion or jewellery would be wonderful, as would anything else that is made with love 🙂

      The address to send donations is 85 Clementina Road, London, E10 7LT alternatively it can be dropped off at a hardware store in on Leyton hire road- the address can be found on the contacts page of our website http://www.algerianaction.co.uk
      Thank you so much for your help!

      Best wishes, Emma
