2016 has been a productive year for the charity in which we made three convoy deliveries of aid to Belarus including vehicle loads sent to ‘new’ areas of Stolin and Yatsevichi both in the Pinsk area of the Brest region. Once again it has been very rewarding to help the helpers = organisations and individuals who cater for the needs of the sick and disabled many of whom live with their families is serious poverty.
With our contacts over the years we are able to deliver a wide range of items from furniture, bedding, clothing and footwear. Building materials such as boarding, paint and flooring etc. are in big demand to support the provision of respite homes and centres where mothers and their disabled children can have a well earned break from their often stressful situation at home.
In April 2017 with the support of IKEA we will be sending four or five vehicles to destinations across the Brest and Gomel regions.
To all our supporters the aid team wish you and yours a very happy and successful 2017.
