Our Drive to Supply Campaign
As with many of you, we have witnessed with horror the invasion of Ukraine and the devastation to a country that has been through so much.
In our ‘Drive to supply’ campaign, we plan to drive a van (or vans) loaded with much needed supplies through Europe, to the Ukraine/Poland border to give out to the thousands of refugees who have been displaced through these horrendous events.
We cannot do this challenge without the support of you, our patients, and our community, and we know you will do all you can to help us with this cause. Every small donation will make a big difference.
There are three ways in which you can help, you can do one, two, or even all three, and everything you put into this effort is appreciated and will do a great deal for those needing help.
- Donations of supplies to fill our van, we have researched many sites to identify what is needed and a comprehensive list is at the bottom of this appeal, please remember the majority of the refugees are women and children and so supplies must revolve around their needs.
- Cash, if you can’t get out and about to buy supplies, you can donate cash through our just giving page and we will buy further supplies with it, nothing will be wasted
- We anticipate more donations than we can reasonably hold in one van, so if you have a van and want to join us, please get in touch.
