DESA is partnering up with FACES to collect new or 2nd hand books in good condition to donate them to the orphanage in Kenya which FACES help run. The event will take place from the 12th to the 15th of March, and they intend to send the books by the 21st of March, which marks the 5th anniversary of Chinua Achebe’s death. Chinua Achebe, a Nigerian novelist, professor, poet and critic wrote in both Urdu and English in order to spread literature in Western and African countries.
FACES is a Maltese based organisation who help run an orphanage in Kenya. Children in this orphanage are well read and are always looking for more books to read.
Further details will be announced soon.
