Warm winter clothing appeal.

Some members may remember the project to knit warm winter hats for Syrian refugee children in the Diyarbakir camp. It has been ongoing for 2 winters now, and the Datca ladies are still knitting. However, the organisation I've been working with is no longer running transports, just too dangerous. So, I've been looking for an alternate, reputable charity, and am now in touch with the Worldwide Tribe, an Australian group working in many countries including Turkey.

They are working with Syrian refugees in a village near Izmir; there are currently more than 3000 refugees there, including 1000 children of school age, and 500 children/infants under 3 years. Many of the children have no shoes or socks, and thin clothing totally unsuitable for the extremely cold winter conditions in Izmir. Numbers are almost certain to increase,given the dreadful situation in Aleppo and the opening of the border, and the weather forecast is for minus nighttime temperatures.

The group have put out an appeal for good quality, warm winter clothes; good condition second hand items gratefully accepted, but they must be warm. The Datca Stitch 'n Bitch group are knitting and turning out their wardrobes, and other donations have already been offered.

Realistically, the appeal is to those living in Turkey because of the cost of sending the boxes, but ALL donations will be appreciated. If you would like to contribute please send me a PM or contact Linda Akgol on FB Messenger for the address and contact details.

Thank you for reading this rather long post, and please consider finding a few items that might keep someone warm this winter.

Maybe try following in the footsteps of the hoards of invaders and pick up their droppings/cast-offs surely with what they seem to be leaving lying around, after a good clean would no-doubt be more than suitable.

Are we talking about the Angles here, or the Saxons?

Re: Warm winter clothing appeal.

So where is all the Aid money going ? I heard a journalist on the news yesterday, who was at one of the large refugee camps telling us how cold and wet it is and that most of the children have no warm clothes and many are just wearing flip-flops walking in freezing mud because of the lack of proper shoes. Surely the first priority with the aid is to take care of the children ?
