Support us through the purchase of handmade banana leaf greeting cards

Using locally collected banana leaves,  Edward Makara, the Rwandan founder of REST, crafts each of these cards by hand.

For just $5 dollars, you can purchase a card. 90% of the proceeds will be used to support the refugees living in Mahama Camp, with the remaining funds being used to purchase supplies to make more cards.

By buying just one card, you can provide a bed-net to help prevent malaria or several articles of clothing for a refugee.

If you wish to purchase a card, please email us at We are working on creating a more streamlined process for ordering cards, but until that time we kindly ask for your patience.
