MADAGASCAR – WHY IS THE SEA RED?
An illustrated talk by Clare Brown and Irenee Rajaona-Horne
FRIENDS’ MEETING HOUSE KESWICK
November 30 2016 7-9 p.m.
Malagasy Craft Stall
Keswick Peace and Human Rights Group (KPHR) and Money for Madagascar (Charity No: 1001421) invite you to join us for this talk.
On this occasion we will remember Wendy Sougnez who died earlier this year and was a member of KPHR and a lifelong campaigner for peace and human rights.
Madagascar is best known to many of us as a tropical island unique in its flora and fauna. It is certainly this and a special holiday destination. But it is also a nation of extreme poverty, rapid deforestation, illegal export of precious resources and a population explosion.
Hear about the challenges facing the island’s people, the history of Quakers on the island and the inspiring way that Malagasy people work towards human rights for all.
There will be a crafts’ stall with cards, calendars, small handicrafts and information about alternative gifts.
A collection will be taken during the evening to support grassroots organisations in Madagascar through Money for Madagascar.
Please come to learn more about Madagascar, support our work and maybe do some shopping at our beautiful Malagasy craft stall!
