Lema's colourful crochet

We love the colour and friendliness of the wider Ranui community.

Amani, Lema, Charmaine and Mary

We meet friendly new people: Mary, of Croatian ancestry, has lived in Ranui for more than thirty years, and is now 100 years old. Lema, from the Republic of Congo, is a refugee who crochets the vibrant woollen headbands above as a fundraiser at local markets for an orphanage in her home village; her daughter Amani is in her final year at a local college and hopes to become a nurse.
