Governor helps loading aid for Ukraine

District Governor Helen (third from right) gave up part of her Bank Holiday Monday to help load a vehicle taking aid to the Revival Centre in Chernihiv in North Ukraine.  The Revival Centre provides treatment for children with mental or genetic disability and specialises in the care of those who have inherited disorders resulting from the Chernobyl disaster.

The van pictured is one of three that take aid to Ukraine four times a year.  The Rotarians in the Rotary Club of Northwick Park assemble items of aid which are taken by UK-AID (also known as Felsted Aid for Deprived Children).  Current requirements are for Children’s Clothing, Toiletries, Nappies, Children’s Shoes, Adult Shoes and Adult Winter Coats.

If you have items for shipment, or are willing to provide items, the next convoy leaves on 6 October 2016.  Your items can be collected – if it is a good load – or can be dropped off to a member of the Rotary Club of Northwick Park.

The van in the picture was purchased by Rotarians across London in September 2012.
