Vanleles Diamonds, an African fine jewelry house with a mission to make an impact, is currently donating 100% of sales of white gold and diamonds in the Nile Collection to Malaika.
Noella serves as an inspiration for Vanleles’ gorgeous pieces, and we are beyond grateful to Vania Leles for her generosity. Vania visited our school a few years ago and since then she has remained a huge Malaika supporter in various ways. We love her line and her philanthropic efforts. See Noella’s campaign with Vanleles and shop the collection here.
As the Covid-19 crises has put much of the world on lockdown and led to widespread and myriad challenges on individuals and nations, our community in DRC has been directly impacted. With the onslaught of the virus, the price of food has increased by up to five times.
The Malaika team stepped in as quickly as we could to address this critical issue and meet the community’s need. During the first week of our recent fundraising campaign, we were able to distribute essentials such maize flour, rice, oil, beans and soap, to 60 families! These families were so grateful, and we cannot give out enough thanks to all the donors who supported this effort and the people of Kalebuka during this difficult time. Thank you!
To donate toward this campaign and help provide food for more families who need it, visit our campaign here.
Families across the DRC, and Africa as a whole, are facing daily struggles to get their food staples. Prices of maize meal and rice are skyrocketing, and the situation doesn’t appear to be easing in the near future.
With nutrition critical to staying healthy and boosting immune systems, eating healthy meals is more important now than ever before. At Malaika, we’re buying and distributing food across the village of Kalebuka. Help us enhance our reach by donating to our emergency fundraiser https://bit.ly/2V5otqq
Malaika is one big family, and we leave nobody behind. While COVID19 in the DRC has led the government to call for a temporary closure of our school and community center, it doesn’t mean we can’t still provide support locally. As we navigate these difficult weeks & months ahead, we’re doubling down on our efforts to support the village of Kalebuka by distributing food staples and supplies, as well as organic produce from our very own farm!
But we need your help: With the price of local staple foods rising rapidly in recent days, we have created an emergency fundraiser so that we can make sure as many families as possible have what they need. Please help support this fundraiser here. Together, we can get through this.
