Ukraine Christmas Appeal

As the war with Russia continues to rage, the people of Ukraine need your help. Last year we sent 300 Christmas Shoeboxes to refugee children sheltering in Southern Poland and to an orphanage in Ukraine itself.  This year we aim to send 1000 boxes specifically for babies, children, expectant mothers and adults with the aim of giving them a reason to smile this Christmas to orphanages, children’s homes and Internally Displaced People Centres.
