In February i meet a lovely lady at my Quran class, who really inspired me by her humbleness and kindness towards others. She is a lady who with her and her late DH (may Allah have mercy upon his soul), raised money and built and orphanage in Gambia for destitute children giving them a chance for a better life, she got them a teacher and residence and offered them security with hope. I felt very moved by the efforts of this lady who has no connection with the Gambian people but wanted to help MashaAllah. She was raising funds to extend the building and add walls to some areas as there was only a roof on the school and when it rained they became wet.
I offered her my help in organizing a Bazaar, it took place on Saturday and i am happy to say with Allah's blessings it was a great sucess and we raised £750 on the day , for a small effort really i was so happy, more so happy for the Orphans. I took some pictures , i forgot to take of the garden out there we had tables doing , Henna art, craft tables and cup cake decorating. I had a lot of positive feedback and hope to do this again in the future on a larger scale inshaAllah!
My home was over run with bags of dontated items for the bazaar
I had crafted some broochs for weeks leading upto the event to sell in aid of this cause. They sold really well!
Some book markers i had created
The note books big and small did really well.
