Easter 2020

A huge thank you for supporting our Easter 2020 shoebox appeal. For the last 7 years, we have made two appeals a year for the children in Romania: at Christmas and Easter.

Every month when we are in the villages and rural areas, there are so many children with passed down, hideously ill-fitting shoes, or no shoes at all. Every month, every year, the same. Children who cannot go to school, because they do not have a pair of shoes. All these children we saw in December – just 3 months ago. Whilst it was not snowing, it was very cold, and we were shocked to
the core.

We have been collecting your kind donations of shoes, socks and Easter eggs for 3 months. At the end of March, during the coronavirus lockdown, we were granted permission for our lorry to cross all borders from UK to Romania. Thousands of gifts and shoes finally on the way, and they really will change lives.

Our work in the communities and rural areas of Romania is vital, and a true lifeline. We teach the future generations about empathy towards others and towards animals, in the hope that the future for the stray dogs will on day change forever. A huge thank you to everyone who donated.
