WAWAC GIVING BACK TO AFRICA EVENTS
WAWAC strives to extend a helping hand to our brothers and sisters in Washington and back home in Africa. All year round, we are constantly collecting used clothes, electronics, and other household goods and appliances from partners and community members and distributing them to less-privileged families both here and in The Gambia. This project gives us a unique opportunity to support women and children living in extreme poverty and deprivation. If you donate your used clothes, electronics, and household appliances to WAWAC, we will extend your kind gesture to a well-deserved family.
We also did a clothes distribution drive on Kairaba Avenue (Gambia’s main business strip) where passers-by stopped and grab whatever they wanted. We also donated some items to some local community-based organizations in The Gambia that reached out to us.
In November of 2020, our team went to Ndian village in Kombo and donated the items we sent to Gambia to families that are in need. As you can see, the kids don’t even have shoes or shirts to wear. This consignment of clothes really came handy for them as explained by the mom Ms Clara Dacosta. According to her, “winter is already here she has no money to buy clothes for the kids. “Even though I want to buy clothes for them, I am more worried about putting food on the table for them”
Please continue to support. If you have any used clothes, toys, cooking utensils, electronics and or cash you would like to donate contact us on WhatsApp +14045936215 or Gambia +2207833524.
No amount or resource is too small; you will be surprised that every little thing can make a big difference.
