Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
The Stafford Centre is a mental health resource in Edinburgh run by Support in Mind Scotland.
We are fundraising to enable us to send 4 volunteers plus a staff member to the family centre at Vileyka in Belarus.
Vilejka has a population of about 26000 with a further population of 24000 living in the surrounding rural area. Within the town around 50% of families have heating and water however within the surrounding rural area most families do not have these commodities. Around 25% of the total population are elderly and struggle to survive on the state pension.
The family centre is run by the local municipal but is severely restricted in its work due to financial restraints. As a result only a very small percentage of those living in poverty have any support from outwith their family. After finding out about stand international our service users had no hesitation in volunteering for this worthwhile cause.
We need to raise £2000 to help us get there by donating as little as a £1 you will not only be helping our volunteers you will be helping the people in Belarus where the family centre means so much to so many people.
