Urgently needed:

Dear Paphos Residents,

Caritas Paphos and The Learning Refuge are in need of extra help during the lockdown! Many of our families who were receiving help in the form of food bags and pharmacy goods are now experiencing more problems because they cannot reach government offices, supermarkets, our charity shops or the Learning Refuge which is now closed.

Please help us collect more non-perishable foods (call 99595385 for information how) or make a bank donation to:

Account number / IBAN: 357010919369 / CY57002001950000357010919369

In the ‘transaction details’, please write PAPHOS FOOD APPEAL so that your donations reach us.

The Following are ongoing requirements:

Winter is fast approaching, and we are desperately seeking items such as gas bottles, duvets, blankets and heaters. One very generous local lady has paid for one of our families to be supplied with gas all through winter, but every blanket will help!

Norman Tebbit would be proud. Young refugee men find bikes very useful when they are looking for work. Help them get back on their feet by donating an old bicycle you no longer use or need. You will be helping somebody out and clearing some shed space!

We have two mothers-to-be expecting soon, and needing baby items, especially pram/pushchair/cot/nappies. Also, a family with four young children, two with terminal wasting condition and needing help with size 5 and 6 nappies.

These heart mosaics are lovely. Why not commission one for yourself? That way we can farm out work chopping tiles to the refugee ladies whom we have been training. And if you make your own mosaics, why not outsource your tile chopping to our ladies?

If you can help us, please contact Mary at leighmary2@yahoo.com.
