In fact, it’s very easy to make a significant difference to those in need. Here is a fantastic example. Someone kindly and generously donated some golfing umbrellas (THANKYOU!) no longer needed. Instead of ending up as landfill they are used to the benefit of street cobblers and vegetable stall holders in Sri Lanka. As you can see, the floor is their shelf and the umbrella is more than two days wages at least!
The benefit of the umbrellas? Simple really – these are the roofs of those who have the most simple of shops, keeping sun (mainly) and rain from them. It makes a huge difference for these folk, who would otherwise not be able to afford this sort of protection . There are a few photos below to show you the impact of this simple donation.
Yup, it’s already a year since our last container went out. Only seems like yesterday and we were packing the last lot of boxes and closing the doors on the 2016 container. At the end of each of these marathons we relax for a moment and think to ourselves “another year before we do that
We say it every year, and we are saying it again this year – where has the year gone? No sooner is one shipment away than we are getting ready to handle another one. This year our packing timetable is Saturday 24 Sept to Thursday 29 Sept 2016. Prior bookings for students are essential. Location
With the help of a huge ‘army’ of people we completed packing 236 cartons that will be shipped to Sri Lanka. Praise God for His provision .. and compassion towards those in need. My special and humble thanks to each and everyone of you.
