Last year RRYM, thanks to your generous support, had the pleasure of financing an annual party for the children who attend the special needs class in Lebanon. We would dearly love to do the same this year, but can only manage it with your help. I know times are hard for everyone, particularly with the onset of Christmas, but these children so deserve a little joy and happiness in their lives. If you would please consider donating towards our target of £130, we would be so very grateful. Children-Video

Our hope is to raise sufficient funds within the next couple of weeks, so that the money can be sent in good time for our friends on the ground to prepare a party for early January. Any possible surplus funds will be put towards the education of these lovely children. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this request.
ere is the latest video produced by our dear friend in Lebanon. It shows a school day in the lives of the children who attend the special needs class each week.
It will soon be time for us to send sufficient funds to support the children’s education for the next three months. With the onset of winter, one of the most pressing requirements for the next little while will be heating oil to keep the classroom temperature at a tolerable level for working.
If you would like to help us in our efforts to continue supporting these children and their dedicated teachers, please use the link pay.rrym or contact us for our charity’s bank details. Thank you and enjoy the VIDEO
For those of you who were generous enough to support our efforts to set up the library and tailoring projects in Kiangwali refugee camp in Uganda, here is the latest update from Gideon, our man on the ground.
We are eternally grateful to Refugee Relief Ynys Môn for helping us to pay the 3 CBO employees’ wages for 4 months (July- October). However, we still appeal to each and every one of you to kindly help us achieve the goal of getting the CBO-run projects connected to the mains electricity supply as soon as possible. As afore-mentioned, the solar power supply system that was purchased with the help of Refugee Relief Ynys Môn has been of immense help, but this will not continue to be the case should we succeed in acquiring electronic appliances/gadgets such as a printer, a photocopier, a desktop computer, and a flat iron. Connection to the mains electricity supply will cost UGX 2,000,000 or £425.
If I may also include the prices of the machinery just in case a good Samaritan somewhere chooses to donate for the purpose of purchasing them, a printer costs Ugx 700,000 or £150. A photocopier costs Ugx 1,000,000 or £215. A desktop computer costs UGX £500,000 or £110. A flat iron costs Ugx 100,000 or £22. Finally, but most importantly, we need to secure a total of UGX 800,000 or ££170 Each month to pay the wages of the librarian, the tailor and the night watchman. all three individuals are vital to ensure the smooth running of the project.
Your kindness and generosity will go a long way in ensuring that the projects run smoothly. Thank you very much.

Last Saturday, 24 June, I fulfilled my ambition of climbing Yr Wyddfa, (Snowdon) for the very first time. The weather left much to be desired, becoming increasingly wet and windy during our climb. As you will see from the pictures we had very heavy cloud cover for the duration of our time on the mountain. The first half of the climb was about what I had been expecting, steep in parts but manageable. The second half, with its uneven, rocky terrain, I found particularly tough going. Frequent breaks on my part became more and more necessary as we scrambled and clambered our way over steep slippery rocks towards the summit. By this time I had developed jelly legs and even the muscles I didn’t know I owned until Saturday’s trip were ganging up on me in protest. Had I not benefited from the patience and encouragement of Barry, Sophie and Jamie, I may well have fallen short of my goal. Their company, along with thoughts of what the people we will be supporting with funds raised from this climb have been obliged to endure, proved sufficient motivation for me to keep going.
It had always been our intention to catch the train down from the summit. Imagine my horror when I learned that the train service from the top had been suspended due to adverse weather conditions! 😅 We had no option but to retrace our steps. On arriving at Clogwyn station, which is situated about a quarter of the way down, we were delighted and relieved to discover that the train service was still running from there to the bottom of the mountain. I can honestly say that I’ve never in my entire life been so overjoyed to board a train!!!
Four days later and I’m recovering nicely from Saturday’s adventure. Whisper it quietly but my thoughts are already beginning to turn towards a suitable challenge for 2024, health permitting.
Meanwhile, if any of you would like to add to my current total which stands at £245, please feel free to use the following options:

Here is the latest update from our friend Nour in Lebanon. The special needs children are hard at work as you will see from the video: Watch Video
he past week has been a particularly difficult and desperately sad one for the majority of Syrians. Our young friends are no exception. You will see them in the video as they hold up cards bearing messages of support as well as words of sympathy for Syrian children who have been caught up in the tragedy of last week’s earthquake.
If you would please consider making a donation so that these children can continue to attend their weekly class feel free to use the link pay.rrym.uk or contact us for details of our charity’s bank account. Thanks as ever for your interest and continued support.
Here are the latest highlights from the project that our charity, Refugee Relief Ynys Mon, are supporting in Arsal, Lebanon: Watch Video
Hi Everyone, here, courtesy of our good friend Nour, are some of the highlights from the children’s second visit to the school which took place two days ago. According to what the parents/guardians of the children have been telling Nour, the children spend all week dreaming about the next Tuesday, because it is a special day where they can play, learn, sing and make friends. They can also enjoy some biscuits and drink some juice, something which is never available to them inside their tents. A huge heartfelt thank you to Catherine, Shaz, Sobia, Carys, Claudia and Betty. Your generosity will serve to ensure that this very worthwhile project will continue for as long as possible.
If anyone wishes to donate, please use the link pay.rrym.uk or our charity’s bank account. Meanwhile enjoy the video!
