I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

Help needy children and help yourself
Akuc Deng Was Inspiration for Panwakema
Panwakema is a charity started in 2012 to help children in Sudan who have been affected by its civil war.
It was inspired by Akuc Deng, a young woman who came to Adelaide as a refugee from South Sudan. Akuc's family was forced to abandon their home when she was aged 7 and flee to Kenya, where they waited 5 years before being granted entry to Australia. She soon decided that she wanted to help give the children of her homeland a better chance for a future too.
Panwakema's goal is to improve access to education in South Sudan by building an orphanage, school and medical centre, and they need your help to raise $20,000 for this. You can find out more about Panwakema (a registered charity) on Facebook.
On Saturday July 13 Panwakema is holding a free family fete at Unley Uniting Church south of Adelaide. There will be around 50 stalls selling artisan foods, unique handcrafts, vintage clothing and second hand goods, books, and of course there will be entertainment including face painting for children.
Colourful Laser Cut Pendants from Once Upon a Tree
You will be able to buy hand woven pashmina shawls made in Kashmir from Kashmir Heaven, exquisite handmade jewellery from Briny Blue and beautiful laser cut pendants from Once Upon a Tree, baby goods from Reason Design and childrens accessories from Indigo Avenue. There are just too many vendors to list individually, so be sure that you don't miss out and mark the date in your diary.
The list of food vendors hasn't been finalised yet, but I can reveal that popular gourmet German food van Wienerbago will be available to spice your taste buds. They have been very popular at Fork on the Road food festival, and will be a hit again at the Fete.
