aid to a children's hospital and an orphanage in Moldova; a former

Provided height adjustable beds, cots and computers for the hospital.
Enabled disabled girls at the orphanage to learn craft skills
and sell some of their work.
Clothed needy members of the public, including children who were
previously unable to attend school.
Our overheads are very small, all workers are volunteers and administration
is kept to a minimum. Our main expense is funding lorries to carry
the aid, this costs around £2,500 per trip ($3,600 / €4,100).
