The plan for April 2015 is to send at the least four vehicles on convoy to Belarus. This gives us the opportunity of sending over 35 tonnes of aid. The vehicles are available and our stock of a wide range of aid is building with every hope that this will be sufficient on the final loading day. The bigger task will be to fund this convoy and a later one planned for November/December this year.
Deciding which receivers will benefit from the upcoming convoy is another task under consideration with several organisations in Belarus making regular contacts hoping that they will be ‘on the list’. The team for April is also part decided and as usual all will be volunteers who ‘pay their own way’ leaving just the ferry costs, fuel, tolls and taxes to be met. More of this later as the planning continues.
