We all tend to prioritise 'essential items' when thinking about aid. But sometimes, especially when children are involved, it's nice to just give something fun once in a while. These poor traumised children have made it through so much, I think they deserve a small amount of comfort. A £5 donation is enough to fill a bag for one child.

Bags Of Love


I don't know how much you know about the situation in the hospitals in Syria in the aftermath of an airstrike. It's chaotic and incredibly busy.
Due to the lack of staff, when children are brought in, there is no provision for a quiet space, there is rarely anyone with the time to comfort them.
The doctors have asked that we launch an appeal to fill bags with things that will keep the children distracted and maybe offer them some comfort.
We are ordering 1000 drawstring/duffle bags

For a £5 donation we will fill a bag with items like

1. A cuddly toy.

2. A pack of felt tips or pencil crayons (with a sharpener) and a pad

3. An outdoor toy such as a tennis ball, skipping rope, yoyo etc

4. A packet of sweets- HALAL suitable

5. A picture drawn by the child that has filled it, a note telling those children that we care, we think of them and we are reaching out to them ❤️
