After having run a successful pilot project, it is our privilege to officially launch our Micro-Credit project, Golden Hands. For just £130 we are able to help a woman to set up her home based business. Based on her skills gained from KIRF training centres, it is hoped she will be able to earn £50-£70 per month. From these earnings she will be able to pay for her children’s schooling and provide for other family needs. Read more...
This is one of the products of our Golden Hands project.
Within the first 6 months these women will repay our costs so that we can enrol more women onto the scheme. The object of this scheme is to continue revolving the £130, therefore helping as many as possible with funds that are available at a given time.
Upcoming KIRF Thalassemia & Plasmpheresis Centre project
Thalassemia’s refer to a group of medical conditions which affect the red blood cells in the body. The red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen around the body for all the body’s vital metabolic processes.
Plasmapheresis is a term used to refer to a broad range of procedures in which the patient’s blood is filtered by specialist machinery to separate the blood components. These components include: red cells, white cells, platelets, and plasma. The plasma which contains toxins can then be discarded and replaced whereas the essential blood products are retained.
