First, Some Good News

Following the emergency appeal for Syrian refugee who's house was gutted by fire:
Thanks to the appeal on Paphos Life many individuals came forward. Someone offered an new washing machine, another person offered a new TV, others offered bed linen, clothes, others volunteered to paint & decorate, so a bunch of Caritas volunteers and friends, including the smart boys from the church of the Latter Day saints, all helped to clear the flat of burned furniture etc, then we scrubbed every wall and ceiling, and started to repaint and refit with second hand and new items. Now we can be sure her flat is in good repair, and there will be no risk from old faulty wiring again. A facebook crowdfunder organised by our volunteer teacher Rachael Pettus, Co-founder of the Learning Refuge, also raised over 300 euros to help the lady with all the expenses of the refit.

UNIFORM & SCHOOL BAGS
Last year a wonderful local lady went to ASDA in UK and sent back over 100 euros worth of grey standard school uniform. I wonder if we could inspire someone to do something similar again? She also gave customers in her shop free nail manicures in return for donations to our appeal. If anyone has any ideas like this, or could do source some uniform for us over in the UK, it would be great as the cost of the uniforms over in UK is much less, and we would just need to provide them with a general list of our uniform needs. If they contact me I can explain further. Otherwise, donations welcome...

DISCO: WE ARE TRYING TO HAVE A DISCO AT THE END OF THIS MONTH.

JOB DONE

The evening was a great success. Thanks to all those who helped.

FANS: we have had requests from several families for cool air fans, as the summer is sooo hot. Our families live in non air conditioned flats and homes, and often many family members in smaller spaces. Second hand but good working order is fine.

CASSEROLE DISHES: we have a family who have requested large size casserole dishes, second hand fine, there are now 2 families with children living in 1 home and so they need to cook big meals.
