24 PALLETS OF FOOD HEADING TO SYRIA!! Well done Stroud and Gloucestershire – thanks to the generosity, compassion and hard working efforts of our community, we’ve been able to send around 720 family food boxes to the suffering people of Syria, in both the internal refugee camps and, hopefully, some beseiged areas too. The 40ft container of food is on its way to be unloaded in Turkey where commited volunteers will transfer it all into vehicles and drive it over the border into Syria straight to those in need.
Huge thanks to all of you who donated food and funds to enable us to do this. Also to the charity, One Nation who organise the monthly food parcels like these and provide the funding for the container and shipping, as well as liaising with local Turkish/Syrian charities who deliver and distribute the parcels. Please check out their website for info and videos of food parcel deliveries in Syria. We would also like to thank the wonderful Shazia Malik from Bristol who was instrumental in putting us together with One Nation, helped us buy food in bulk, found the warehouse for packing, helped to pack, and more. We truly could not have done so well without her – she is an inspiration! Thank you all x
