When Sue Wiltshire heard about the difficulty the children in the Egipatsko Selo orphanage have in obtaining shoes and underwear, she created a campaign called “Smalls for All”. She spread the word among her friends and before long packets of underpants and knickers began arriving from all over the UK. And they kept coming. For a while it didn’t seem like they were going to stop. In total the campaign collected about 500 items.
It was great having such an overwhelming response but with almost 30KG of clothing, Sue was then faced with the problem of how to deliver it to the kids.
Parcel Hero came to the rescue and not only offered to deliver the clothing to the orphanage, but have now agreed a long term partnership with Our Kids Foundation enabling us to transport regular donations from the UK.
We are pleased to say that the friendly and efficient staff at Parcel Hero have now successfully completed the first delivery. The parcels arrived safe and sound in super-quick time and were received by the Nasa Djeca project team in Mostar. You can see it pictured below with Sanela and Ðana.
Our Kids Foundation would like to say a big thank you to Sue and her friends, and to Parcel Hero for their generous help.
