Of African Origin Clothes distributed to people in Zimbabwe who REALLY needed them

Kendrick Imports http://www.kendrickimports.com now imports range of authentic Safari and travel clothing made by Of African Origin http://www.kendrickimports.com/index.php/of-african-origin

The range includes shirts, blouses, shorts, t shirts, polo shirts, safari jackets, skirts and bandanas. All of the clothes are specifically designed for Safari and travel.

The Company “Of African Origin” make the garments specifically for wear in the African climate and therefore they are perfect for your Safari wear!

All Of African Origin clothes are fairly and ethically traded.  Recently the company sent 1200 garments that were “over-runs” and had been collected over the years to a lodge called Matetsi in Zimbabwe. They asked for the clothes to be distributed to the staff.

These photos show how the clothes were received by the people who worked at the lodge:-

Most people in Zimbabwe cannot afford the bare necessities anymore and although the staff at this lodge are amongst the fortunate few who still have a job, most of them have to support a large number of unemployed relatives as well as an ever rising number of AIDS orphans. They have barely enough money to buy scarce and expensive food and certainly no cash for clothes.

The clothes were put into  carrier bags by the lodge and given out to the staff – they say a picture paints a thousand words….. and just look at those faces!
