A total of 41 banana boxes were filled with essential items for Pregnant women or new Mums, Babies, Vulnerable families or Women who have escaped ISIS as part of the Lent Aid Care Pack collection.

Louth Churches for Refugees working with the support of Churches together in Louth and District organised the collection on behalf of Samara’s Aid Appeal. Samara focuses on getting aid to the most vulnerable and desperate, often in war torn areas still under attack in Iraq and Syria.

Churches, Craft Groups, Schools, Families and individuals donated new and many beautiful handmade items which will demonstrate the care, love and compassion we have for all those trapped in such distressing circumstances.  The boxes will now be transported to Jacob’s Well in Beverley to containers which will be shipped to the Middle East. Thank you for your generosity to all who donated goods and cash for transportation and also to Louth Lions for underwriting the shortfall in transport costs.
