June has been a very busy month, for me personally and for Algerian Action.

Lots of things were donated which is just wonderful! every single item given makes a difference to somebody in need so it really is lovely to see so many people giving generously and making the lives of others that little bit easier. All types of things have been sent in, below is just a small sample.

june rupWe have also been collecting for our Eid Appeal. If you would like to contribute to this by donating sweets, balloons, small toys the items must be received in the UK by the 7th July at the very latest. Our last shipment before Eid will be on the 9th of July so really there is just about a week left to help.

Like last year we will also be providing food parcels to those in need for the month of Ramadan, we held an auction last weekend on Facebook to help fundraise for this so huge thanks to all of you who participated and made it such a worthwhile event.

We will be holding another one at the beginning of August to help us buy more wheelchairs for children in the Mustapha Pascha hospital in Algiers.The children’s cancer unit didn’t have any wheelchairs to transport the children from the ward  to the chemotherapy  treatment area so last month we bought them two but, we hope to get them another three.

If you are a business owner, crafter or just have something lying around at home that you don’t need please get in touch – we would love to have your support for our August auction.


Have a great weekend everyone!

Eid Appeal 2012

Our Eid Appeal for 2012 is now well under-way, in fact there are just two more weeks left to collect donations!

People have been so generous sending things in, simple treats like balloons, sweets and small toys- all the things that children love in addition to some new clothing.

This year our aim is to give gift parcels to 750 children. So far, we have 510 -which is more than we gave out last year or the year before that but, we still need 240 more to reach our target – Can you help?

Eid Appeal update

You supporters have been so generous with your donations. Treats, clothing and bags have been pouring in for The Eid gift appeal which is just fantastic!

Today I had a sort through all of the lovely things that have been sent in and made them up into gift bags just to see what is still needed.

Well I am delighted to say that between us all we have managed to get together 102 complete bags, each one is different but they all contain an item of clothing, pens/pencils/ craft materials, a toy,sweets balloons and a few little extras. 102, isn’t that just wonderful!  

There is still a way to go before we reach our target, but we have done marvellously well so far. Thank you so much for your support and enthusiasm. Best wishes as always, Emma x
