Barnabas Fund is in direct contact with churches that are welcoming, housing and caring for those fleeing into Poland, Moldova, etc. This is also adding strain to the existing churches in these neighbouring countries to help their own communities, as well as caring for Ukrainian refugees. Therefore, we would like to kindly ask for your help to send practical aid to help support Christians. Could you and your churches consider helping in the following ways:
1. Collect the following items as a church to be transported to refugees – these items are:
a. Food: tinned food (that can be opened without a can opener), cup-a-soup packets and energy bars
b. Blankets (preferably thick, good quality, can be second-hand, but not ripped or dirty)
c. Warm Clothing (preferably coats, thick jackets – good quality, can be second-hand, but not ripped or dirty)
2. Collect those items and bring them to the food.gives Warehouse in Swindon (32b, Ganton Way, Techno Trading Estate, Swindon, SN2 8EZ).
a. Opening hours – 9am – 5pm
b. Monday – Friday
3. Volunteer to help pack and prepare these items at the Warehouse and load onto vans ready for transportation to Poland, Moldova etc.
