Collection for Mongolia: Update
On behalf of the children and families cared for by The Christina Noble Children's Foundation in Mongolia, I would like to thank all who so generously donated warm clothing and cameras over the past few months.
The clothing has been boxed into 7 crates which are now on their way to Mongolia while the cameras raised an amazing £650. This money will be taken to Mongolia where it will directly benefit children and families in desperate need, for example paying for life-changing medical treatment and medication that otherwise would be beyond the reach of many sick and injured children.
We, and especially the children and families who will benefit, are so grateful to you. The need is ongoing and I am still collecting hand-knitted clothing, hats and scarves as well as old cameras, laptops and binoculars.
Thank you so much.
