The whole world is on panic mode due to the Corona virus and people are going crazy with excessive food stocking, fighting in supermarkets over a bag of rice and toilet paper. Here's a little reminder for you all from refugees and how we have been living for the past decade with death and destruction and poverty and lack of food. Take lesson from people who have nothing and yet they are patient .
Hi All, just a short message to let you know that this morning our trustees transferred £50 to the Anglesey food bank from our charity account.￼ it’s a pleasure to be able to support those a little closer to home as well as our brothers and sisters living overseas. Hopefully they will find the donation useful in what really are proving to be trying times for us all. Stay safe and keep well everyone. Heulwen
Here is the latest post from our friends Philippa and Eric Kempson of the Hope project. We have been sending boxes of aid to them for a long time. We will be resuming normal service as soon as the storm has passed! Meanwhile our thoughts are very much with them.
Hi Everyone, it is with a very heavy heart that I have to report that we at RRYM have decided to suspend the intake of donations for the time being. We have come to this decision in a bit to keep everyone safe and as a result of the need for social distancing. Can I please ask that you refrain from taking any donations to our drop-off points for the foreseeable future.￼ this includes the homes of any of our trustees. Thank you so much for your understanding in this matter. These are very strange times in which we find ourselves. Thanks to those of you who have recently donated and collected items for us I havve plenty of work to be going on with during this time. We are still able to ship aide to several projects who are in desperate need. So if any of you would consider making a financial donation towards shipping costs we would be extremely grateful, particularly as we are not able to arrange any fundraising events at the moment. Each 30 kg box costs approximately £30 to ship overseas. The boxes that we post to organisations in the UK cost approximately £10 to send. You can find details of how to donate here on our Facebook page and also on our website. Thanks again for all your support over the past four years. Stay safe, keep well, and we hope to resume normal service as soon as this storm has passed. Sending much love from us all, Heulwen and the RRYM team.
