Here’s a fact: The conflict in Syria has left every 3rd Syrian in need of humanitarian aid. This includes everything from food, clean water and medical care to socks and sanitary towels.
My girlfriend and I are volunteering with the charity Hand in Hand for Syria, which is organising a national programme of fundraising activities called ‘The Big Winter Aid Drop’. The folk at The Station (Broadmead, Bristol) have kindly offered their venue as the Bristol collection point.
This is where you come in. Please, please come to The Station between 11am and 3pm on the 9th November and donate any of these items:
– wet wipes
– baby milk
– new coats and jumpers
– snow suits
– Wellington boots
– hat scarves and gloves
– socks and tights
– blankets, duvets, sleeping bags
– ground sheets
– paracetamol and ibuprofen
– sanitary towels
– medical equipment
If you can’t make it on the day get in touch with me through my contact page (or on twitter @nathanfiler) and I can arrange to collect donations from you. If you are able to hand out any flyers/ posters at your local school, play group, cafe please let me know and I’ll get them to you.
You can also donate using this amazon wish list.
That’s all. Thanks.
