**URGENT APPEAL FOR UKRAINIAN REFUGEES**
*UPDATE 11 MAY 2022*
Showing the lovely children into our toy room is always our favourite part.
Seeing them choosing their very own toys is so lovely. 💞
He was so excited and couldn't wait to get back home so he could play with his new toys. 💞
Later at home I got a call from the host to say that there was no cars included and the little boy was distraught, I could hear him crying in the background. 😥 he was inconsolable.
It may sound extreme but when you are 5 years old and have been through what they have, leaving everything you own, your home, your family, your friends, your own toys etc ...its a big deal.
So we arranged to get him some toy cars and delivered them today to the host at her workplace. I think it's safe to say that we now have a happy little boy.😊
Please be advised that we are using an appointment only system. If you wish to bring in your Ukrainian guests please call us to book an appointment first. Thank you 🇺🇦
*Update 7th March*
After being inundated last week with physical donations of aid we are now preparing to send a team of SHARE Volunteers from Chester & North Wales to the Polish / Ukrainian Border, this could happen as soon as next week, we have already established links with other charities and teams on the ground and our team from Chester & North Wales will be focused on buying and distributing aid, including food and medical supplies at various points along the border where hundreds of thousands of people are arriving.
We will be reporting back daily so that anyone donating to our appeal can see how their money is being used. We need your support, fundraising and donations now more than ever.
Could you make a difference to the life of a refugee?
Share is funded via donations and income from our charity shop in Chester and our centre in Mold.
Your money will be used towards supporting refugees here in the UK and overseas, but is not limited to:
- Funding educational training courses such as learning English or attending college to gain a qualification
- Funding transport such as bus passes, rail cards and taxi fares to enable people to access education, services and support
- Funding essential items such as toiletries, clothing, footwear, items for children and babies, furniture etc
- Sending aid abroad - Share in Mold regularly sends sacks of much needed clothing, footwear and other essential items to the refugee camps in Europe, Syria and beyond. We also pack up pallets with boxes of medical supplies and equipment, educational books and toys, tents, sleeping bags and camping equipment, for distribution to areas of most need.
