£164 going to the bakery on Chios so Pothiti Kitromilidii and CESRT can buy food for the unaccompanied minors (11 in ark and 80 in Vial) – this is a very kind donation from Karin S xx
£200 sent 11th August directly purchased from Greek Supplier on Rhodes- Chainsaw for Tilos island making buildings for the Vulnerable Refugee Centre there – the one they have has broken and need to clear a lot of overgrown areas to continue the project. (Wood/ branches will be used for fuel so will not be wasted)
You don’t need to live near our unit to help us with physical aid items.
If you aren’t nearby to our Llay, Wrexham unit why not get a supermarket shop delivery sent to us of nappies, wipes, bottles of baby milk, food, plasters, and lots of other things from our needs list for the different emergency packs for hygiene, food and baby packs

Was just asking Martin about a case in Lebanon of a young boy with a cracked skull, trying to get some more info about the location and case etc.
And he pointed me to part of the UN site which has a list of UNHCR partners and where they operate so could come in handy.
As ever good chat with Elias Matar in LA tonight. Looking forward to seeing a sneak preview of his new film, Exodus filmed in Greece (Chios) and Turkey.
If you haven’t already seen his first film FLIGHT OF THE REFUGEES it’s won awards at film festivals in the USA, it has only had one showing here in UK in Liverpool.
We can provide events for schools, colleges, universities, societies etc. with a Q&A session and the film. We would charge a donation fee or people would pay for tickets whichever is suitable for the type of event (the funds support our projects and we pay 10% of it to him to make sure he can continue to make more films (number 3 is of Lebanon refugee situation) highlighting what refugees are facing in this major humanitarian crisis.
Today Jane Butcher did loads of blogging for us to get us up to date on the website which was very amazing given she is due to give birth on Saturday 🙂 and Katharine Nell, Greg Ogden and I sorted aid for the packs for softex camp families (softex is an old toilet roll factory which is now a refugee camp in thessaonilki)and then shopped for the remaining needed items.
It covers outfits and footwear for 34 people ranging from 56 years old to 6-9 months old with many of them kids including one small baby. So some of the Thessaloniki funds have been spent on this Thankyou to everyone who donated xxx
Jane then went on to give birth two days later!! A healthy Baby girl. Congratulations xx
