Recently our cargo arrived

We send a cargo twice a year and our recent delivery, together with many other items, included materials and books for our new library as well as educational and recreational toys for our new play room. We have  a number of pre-school age children living with us now in our refuge and we are developing this facility. And our primary school age children enjoyed new track suits thanks to a donation from a school in the UK.
