I heard about this charity exhibition from one of my customers and offered to help out too. We can only imagine what life must be life for families living in these conditions with no hope of ever repaying their debts. When the parents fall ill the children are expected to come and do the back log of brick maknig in the kilns to help out but never seem to be able to catch up and are stuck in a never ending cycle of poverty, and hard work, and unable to continue with education.
The idea of this fundraiser was to create a range of artworks on boards the size of the bricks these families are making and sell them to raise funds. If youre interested in supporting this cause and want to see the artworks, then pop along to the Graceway Church (details below) on Saturday the 30th June at 6pm for drinks and nibbles.

My piece is titled ;The Dress' and is a mixed media artwork.
