Donate to Samir, a talented fashion designer from Kakuma refugee camp, to produce and distribute free masks for his community.
Kakuma Refugee camp in Northern Kenya accommodates around 196,000 registered refugees and asylum-seekers today.
Our artist and founder Rui met a very talented fashion designer, Samir from Kakuma Refugee camp, early 2020 at a fashion workshop. His passion and dream of creating modern, stylish clothes for other refugees caught Rui’s attention.
Since March 2020, the Kenyan government has required everyone to wear masks in public spaces. Samir, a fellow refugee from the DRC has been using his talent to contribute to his community. He makes and distributes masks to those who cannot afford to buy them at his shop. He always hand picks his favourite wax print fabrics that he finds on that day at a local textile store.
Your donations will be sent to Samir to make and distribute masks to those in need as well as giving work to Samir and his tailor team as unemployment continues from this pandemic.

Thank you so much for your support!
