We now have a pallet of aid in our living room waiting to be shipped to refugees. It is desperately needed in Macedonia and so I am trying to raise the money to get it there.
It is mainly just local people and volunteers who are trying to help as the aid agencies are not really present. Through Sussex Refugee Solidarity, we have contacts on the ground so we can make sure we only send what is really needed. The aid is already sorted so that it is easy for volunteers to distribute. Shipping will be via DHL's charity arm which means they do it at cost price. Any spare funds raised will be used to buy other items locally or donated to others who are shipping aid.
