Sophy's buddha bracelets. Sophy is the newest member of the Karakia Collective.
7 years ago Sophy fell from the construction site on which she worked, fracturing her spine. A myriad of surgeries later left her scared from neck to base and unable to walk. Her husband promptly abandoned her and their new born son. Sophy's younger brother supports her, her son, and their mother by scavenging in the nearby dump for recyclables, a unhealthy way to make a living as the dump is constantly burning.
By working with Karakia we hope to empower Sophy and help her to lift her family out of poverty.
