Top Priority Donated Items
Since conditions are so dire in the refugee camps that we supply with aid, we have decided until further notice to limit items we can accept as donations to things that are desperately needed by those we support. We would therefore ask you not to donate ornaments, crockery, large toys or bric-a-brac.
Until further notice priorities will be winter clothes, winter footwear, jackets, blankets, sleeping bags and tents. Toiletries, nappies, baby wipes and medication are also desperately needed. If any of you have summer clothes and shoes that you wish to donate we will continue to accept those throughout the winter as it will enable us to sort them so that we can gain a head start on the fine weather next year. Thanks so much for your continued support. It is greatly appreciated both by ourselves as a charity and by the people we are trying so hard to help.
