    Story

    Two years ago when war broke out in Ukraine I not only saw pictures of orphans of the war but long time orphans who live with very little as the infrastructure in the country has broken down. I also saw pictures of extremely poor families who rely on charity for food and clothing and was affected by what I saw and the seed was sown to try and help. I put out feelers and started working with the nuns at Lviv catholic University who travel with the army risking their lives to the warzone to deliver donations direct to the needy. My husband pays for the transportation which is £1 per kg. Some weeks it has cost £700 others 300. It is coming up to winter where it reaches -40 degrees. I want to send vitamins, cough medicines, inhalers etc. Unfortunately I cannot pay for transport and medicines and would be grateful for any contribution no matter how small to be able to do this. On my facebook page you will see my efforts to help. I have recently been out to Ukraine and seen the work the nuns do first hand and been to villages where chikdren are malnourished. The minimum wage in Nigeria is 150 a month in Ukraine it is 50 dollars but food is almost the same price as UK in local money. What do you do eat or if a child is sick pay for medicine and dont eat! This is a reality for a lot of children. One pound will make a big difference. Thank you for taking the time to read this

    For the last 2 years I have been collecting, sorting clothes, toys, medicines, prams etc to the very poor and orphans in Ukraine affected by the war. I work together with nuns in Ukraine who receive the donations and then distribute them directly to the children.
