Where did your shoebox go?

Your shoeboxes have travelled far and wide, heading to four areas of Romania: Oradea, Cluj-Napoca, Bralia and Tulcea; whilst over 16,000 boxes went to orphanages and those in the care of the government in the Minsk area of Belarus. Our last load will head out shortly to Breza, Bosnia to be distributed by the Red Cross.

Two UK distribution teams have returned from Romania, having the privilege of giving out your boxes. Our partner in Oradea, Raul Gherle, complimented our donors: “We were amazed at the quality of the boxes; particularly those for 6-11yr olds. Every child got such a good box! We saw so much joy giving them out!”
