Thank you everyone who gave goods and funds to send urgent supplies for the desperate needs in war torn Yemen. Our 4th 40 foot container was filled with 300 vitally needed water filters, (to prevent cholera,) over 400 beautifully knitted blankets, over 50 wheelchairs, medical supplies , and other medical equipment. It is eagerly expected in the port of Aden early in October. We are now collecting supplies for a 5th container to send as soon as possible. The need is enormous: 24 million people depending on aid for food, water, shelter and medical supplies, in the world’s worst humanitarian disaster ever known. Urgently needed: milk powder, 5kg bags rice or pasta, powdered vegetable soup, blankets, towels, medical supplies. Contact us for details.
Our contacts there are very grateful for the contribution to all they need as they strive to help the numberless refugees who have fled the war-torn zone.
