Encore’s Karis McQuoid has returned from her two-week trip to Tanzania where she kitted out orphaned children with new shoes and t-shirts.
Karis, who is based at the Winter Gardens, raised money ahead of the trip to buy items of clothing on arrival in the east African country.
The 19-year-old purchased 70 pairs of trainers and 60 t-shirts which she distributed to the children at the Moshi Children Christian Centre (MCCC).
Karis also distributed clothes, much of which was donated, to the children living in Moshi through the centre’s community help programme.
While there, Karis also worked with the kids at the centre by leading craft activities, keep fit sessions and games.
