What Do Your Eyes See?

What do your eyes see?

This is Purity. She works at the Kenana Knitters in Kenya. I love her hair, her head band, the way she wears the colourful wrap in the chilly weather. Her beauty is so evident. But I think she is rather amused at having her photo taken, yet again.

Many of the women at Kenana Knitters have their photos taken repeatedly. People come to visit and want their own memory of the ladies, and so the ladies very kindly smile as they work to earn the living that will change their lives and the lives of their families.

I wonder how we would go if random strangers wandered through our work places and took photos of us as we worked so that they could show them to others and so talk about their experiences of visiting our place of work. I have immense respect for the patient forbearance of these wonderful, wonderful women.

Kenya on the horizon

In less than a month I will be heading to Kenya with my Mum. It is Mum's first trip to Africa so exciting times are in store for us as we travel through this beautiful, inspiring part of the world.

Please feel free to come on the journey with us by visiting this Journal page for images and reflections while we are away.

Below are a couple of pics from the June 2014 trip I did with Georgina Cullum.

So thankful that through the efforts of the Viva Africa team, the shipping team in Nairobi and the Aussie shipping connection we have taken delivery of our Nexus Summer range.

Ebola is creating so many heartaches in Africa right now and the flow on effects are being felt in Kenya. Not just with human suffering but economic suffering, too.

We may not be able to help in a big way but we can help in this way.
