A chronological account of the humanitarian mission last March, which school directors Karen Whitten and Sílvia Catarino took part in.
School directors, Karen and Sílvia, are leaving this Saturday in a small convoy of four minibuses heading for Poland with donations for Ukrainian refugees. They are also coordinating with refugee agencies in order to arrange to pick up families who wish to come back to Portugal with them. We are appealing for donations of first aid kits, medicine, tourniquets, torches, batteries, candles, baby food, nappies, socks and underwear for men, tinned food, walkie-talkies and mobile power banks. These items can be dropped of either at our secondary school in Aljezur or at our primary school, Barlavento, before this Friday at midday. We have also set up a bank account for the purpose of raising money for Ukrainian refugees.
Good morning! On our way to Poland in a 7 mini bus convoy fully loaded with donations for Ukranian refugees and drivers with hearts of gold. We are in touch with people we are bringing back to their relatives in Portugal.
