Uman Tok is thriving!

22.01.21

Last November during our ‘Get-ready-for-Christmas-market’, we donated 10% of all sales to the Sierra Leonean charity Uman Tok. Therefore, we were very happy to receive news from Uman Tok this week that with the donation, they have been able to provide lunch for their tailors which increased productivity. Their efficiency, quality and quantity of sanitary kits has increased the past weeks and the demand for the kits that has gone up!

If you are interested in reading more about the work Uman Tok does or if you wish to support them in any way, you can read more here or contact them via umantoksl@gmail.com.
