This is a cry from the heart. Ewa Walton, hygienist at the dental practice here, has responded with a challenge to us all in very limited time, to provide items of the greatest need for those in Ukraine and Poland.
The greatest needs are…sleeping bags, blankets, warm winter jackets/clothing, nappies, baby wipes and clothes, , baby milk, canned long life food, sanitary items, toiletries, first aid items, etc.
Ewa needs any gifts from us to be at the dental practice by 4.30 Thursday, tomorrow , to be part of the convoy leaving Coventry on Saturday morning.
This is a desperate rush, but anything you can do will be wonderful.
This is of course different to any donations you may be giving to the charities involved in this desperate situation in Ukraine and surrounding countries.
You may have already been asked and helping through a different channel – wonderful.
We do hope you don’t mind us contacting you. It is just the need to be doing something to help these vulnerable people in such horrendous circumstances.
