Algerian Action was set up by Emma Waller, she has run this little project for a few years now.

It all started after a holiday to Algeria, her husband is Algerian and they went to visit his family. She found it to be such a beautiful place with warm, friendly people- they had a great time!

But one thing really stuck with her, the children didn’t seem to have much ‘stuff’, in terms of clothing and especially toys. When she compared her childhood the difference was stark. At that point she decided that she wanted to do something to help, when she had more time. That time came when she went on maternity leave from her job.

She decided to start a little project that would collect unwanted toys and clothing and distribute them to needy children in Algeria. Since that time so many things have been donated, especially from the crafting community- knitters and crocheters have been so generous!

So how can Loving Hands help? Here are some ideas: 5" knit or crochet squares for making up into blankets, completed crochet or knit blankets are very much appreciated too. They assist children aged 0-16 so anything that fits that age group is very welcome -particularly for ages 3-6 years as there is always a big demand for that size.

Items can be added to a mixed box and sent to Loving Hands please PM me for the address :D

To send direct here is their address
