Thank you for your generosity to date. It has been quite remarkable. Today we launch our second appeal for Ukraine. We aim to send another shipment in the coming weeks. In addition to the items we will also need to raise £2,000 for fuel for the lorry taking your donations. If you want to donate in cash we will use the money to purchase items in bulk. Your cash donations have so far already paid for a group of children from an orphanage Fr Ruslan knows to be transported to Switzerland.
