Well it has really started and we are now in March – honestly – how did that happen already??
We have sent 100 kits down to Uplift in Melbourne for distribution through UPLIFT to PNG. The women there are desperate for days for girls kits and we were very kindly supported by CBR Logistics who have donated the transport!!
We have also sent 30 kits to Lubna in Pakistan – and thankfully we have now room in a container so we will be sending 50 kilos of kits, bras and clothing at about 1/3 of the cost as by post – I will be setting up a crowd funding for this $250 but it will stand Pakistan in good stead for the months ahead.
Please think of Lubna at this time as she is nearing the end of her pregnancy and has had some issues with high blood pressure – we are so grateful for the work she does in Pakistan and she is excited to be expecting her son … her daughters are very excited too.
And there is great news for both Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands with more transport options opening up through the Help em facebook group. We are sending days for girls kits, bras and glasses to assist people in very remote villages. We are gratefully working with Ednah below who will arrange to take the items across to the women there.
We are excited that we have a lot of kits and clothing going out over the next weeks – it will free up my garage somewhat – it looks a bit like a clothing shop at the moment.
This is just a quick catch up – I will post again when I have more information – but until then – thank you for everything you do!! Every little bit helps.
Oh and if you can donate some money for the 50kilos in the shipping container that would be awesome – our kitty is pretty low at the moment (under $100)
Lots of love, as always – Carol
