Medical and first aid supplies which have been brought using the donations from a church service to mark the first anniversary of war in Ukraine left on Thursday and will arrive in war torn country today (Tuesday).
David Eggleton who has been working tirelessly since the war broke out collecting and co-ordinating donations and working with MotherSisterDaughter community initiative in Henley has organised these latest supplies through a Ukrainian charity he is now in contact with. He was passed the donations from the church service organised by Krish and Sara Kandiah at St Mary’s Church.
David said, “The donations will be sent via the green corridors to the safe places where they are most needed. I still have some money left over and I’m waiting to hear back from the charity as to what other stuff is needed so that I can buy the essential things. I’m still working with Paul Liczbinski who converted 4×4 vehicles into ambulances who is hoping to set up a hospital. We need to keep the momentum up as things are changing all the time. It’s an ongoing conflict and there will still be lots to do when it is over. It’s been overwhelming the generosity of people, particularly in times when people are struggling with money. Thank you to everyone for their donations.”
