The Power of Coloured Gemstones.
During the Covid-19 Pandemic that unfolded across the world in 2020, Anabela Chan became a Partner of the non-profit organisation Gem Legacy.
Gem Legacy was founded in their belief that gems have a remarkable power to change lives and impact the world collectively. The charity seeks to create positive impact and expand the natural benefaction of gemstone mining on the surrounding community, through long-term support to the children, education, and entrepreneurship for the miners and their families. 100% of donations return directly to the communities.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Gem Legacy actively works to serve the most urgent needs in the gem mining communities of East Africa, with innovative solutions to ensure their holistic success.
In March 2020, we donated 100% of in-store and online sales proceeds to support their Emergency Food Fund in full to provide 7680 nutritional meals to at risk children due to school closures and the lack of government subsidised meals.
Gem Legacy seeks for a way to give back to the region that gives them gems by sponsoring the Mwatate Children’s Home for orphaned children, providing children from Sanawari Primary School with access to secondary education as well as sponsoring the Food Programme for the Kitarini Primary School whose attendance swelled to 800 since the programme started.
We are proud to support Gem Legacy continually for their tireless efforts to change people's lives, where it matters most.
