Direct Reach Ethiopia Clothes Swap & Sale Event

I love just about anything to do with fashion and fundraising and another awesome event is coming up very soon for all you fabulous Perth fashionistas!

Direct Reach Ethiopia (DRE) is hosting a clothes sale and swap event on March 19th – and are seeking volunteers and (Clothing) donations.

About Direct Reach Ethiopia:

DRE has partnered with Hope For Children Ethiopia (HFCE), an Ethiopian organization which provides community-based care to the growing number orphans within the childrens’ home towns. Many of these children are abandoned or displaced due to HIV/AIDS, child abuse or lack of the ability to care for them.

DRE and HFCE support these orphans by providing “Direct Assistance From The Ground Up”. All children are re-homed, nurtured and educated in their own community, as opposed to orphanages or other villages. The children and their caretakers are provided with education, food, clothing, shelter, and basic medical assistance.
