On Wednesday 01 July 2015, Purple Bandage hosted an Eid Card making cardmaking initiative in Roshnee. The event took place at the Roshnee Sports Centre and at the cost of R20 (that included all stationery, the card and a balloon) children were able to make a card for Palestine. For the past few years CWF (Caring Womens Forum) has been sending eid cards and gifts to children in Palestine. Other towns and organisations joinined hands with with them in ensuring this project is seen to fruition.
It was surely a day filled with lots of excitement, smiles and laughter- all in the name of trying to put smiles on the faces of our Palestinian children. Purple Bandage was amazed at the response of the Roshnee Community who so readily accepted the idea and joined in to make a card! We are proud to say that 250 cards were made by our generous parents and children of Roshnee. This was purely a gesture of love and unity embraced by the Roshnee Community.
