Thank You – Some photos from Guera, Chad

In 2014, Our Craft Group made many items for the women and children in Mukulu, a village in Guera, Chad.

A colleague of Noelle Hutchinson, Dave Sharp took the bags and jumpers and hats to Chad for us and he has just returned. He kindly took a photo of the men who received them on behalf of the village, and also Noelle has added a few other photos from the village.
