    Oh wow, it is just fantastic to see the pants reaching all those we had in mind we wanted to help. Well done Maria, what an amazing achievement. I was actually quite emotional looking at these pictures! I’ve enjoyed every second of my involvement in this project (even when a bag of pants and bras fell out of the bag I placed in the overhead luggage shelf on a very packed train, onto an unsuspecting an very embarrassed teenage boy!). Thank you for giving me the opportunity to help!

    I am with Stella on this one (apart from the pants falling on a stranger’s head!) . Fabulous to see these pictures and yes it is quite emotional to see these kids. Amazing! Jx

    These pictures are brilliant. I felt a wee prickle in my eyes too, looking at them. Thanks very much for posting them. This was an issue that my wife and daughter (and me) immediately related to and wanted to support. You’ve done a brilliant job. You’ve impacted on the day to day lives of these people in such a generous and sensitive way. Well done you!

    An amazing project carried out by amazing selfless & caring people. A true inspiration. Will wait till I get home to spend time looking at the pictures, can’t see right now through extremely tearful eyes right now !!! I think the organisers and volunteers are to be commended, what a difference you all make , you just have to look at the childrens little faces.what a better world we would live in if there where more poeple like you – true angels on earth.

    Dear Maria,
    Gerry Leonard’s sister here. Having collected at least 50 pairs from friends at my school which I know from Gerry will go on the next trip, I am inspired to see the response to your wonderful efforts. I hope we can continue our small effort here. So small and meaning so much! My sincere thanks to you for your selfless actions in taking what’s needed to the heart of that need

      Barbara, thanks for your comment and for your help, your donations will def find their way to Africa this year. The plan for the next couple of weeks is to set the wheels in motion to get charity status and work out the next trip. Look out for the next update on 20 February!

    Dear Maria

    Fantastic photographs!

    It was wonderful to see the children looking happy all because of your dedication and hard work. Such a simple gift for them but you have made a huge difference.

    Well done – all because of you!

    If you need any help let me know.

    Love Susan

    Hi Marie, Stella sent me a message to look at the pictures you had posted. The last few days I have been feeling unwell nursing a cold and feeling quite sorry for myself, but when I looked at these photos it certainly lifted my spirits and made me realise how lucky we all are. I thoroughly enjoyed helping out with this project and got a real buzz when I received yet another bag of pants. The photos are wonderful and I felt really emotional when I looked at them. I wish you all the best. Well done to you for your hard work and dedication. Andrea
