Crochet Kenya is a community based organization whose mission is to share love and show care by creating unique and timeless crochet chemo caps for cancer patients in Kenya. We are a group of 11 members of which 3 of the women members meet at their own time to crochet beautiful caps, cloches and hats for donating to various hospitals in Nairobi.
We sell other crochet items like cawls, ponchos, scarves, headbands in order to raise money for buying yarn for the chemo caps we plan to donate.
This is how we package the hats we donate. The most important thing is that we try to work in a hygienically safe environment while crocheting. Each completed chemo cap is tagged with an inspirational message from the Bible. This is just another simple way of encouraging those ailing to keep trusting in God. Our purpose for this project is envisioned in our vision: to show love, care and compassion one stitch at a time.
We believe that providing a crochet artifact like a chemo cap, scarf, bracelet or necklace, cancer pin, to someone undergoing treatment is a not only a simple way of showing them that we care but also a way of uplifting their spirits. These crochet artifacts are a way of saying “we are with you through it all” as we brand each donated item with scripture notes. And of course the bottom-line is to make each patient feel pretty and wholesome in our donated items.
Some of the items we are selling are below:
We need your support to continue with the cause. What is more important at this point is getting volunteer crocheters because we need to move at a fast pace to fulfill our cause. If you have the time and passion to assist this group, kindly contact one of the people below:
