Shoeboxes to Romania
In mid- December 2013, I was privileged to be part of the AMEN team delivering the Christmas shoeboxes in Romania. Having dealt with the admin for several years, and using my garage as a collection point, it was wonderful to see the boxes being handed to children in very poor villages and a special school. One of the local helpers described the boxes as blessings and it was great to see boxes, packed with such care in the UK, bringing great joy to people unlikely to receive any other Christmas gift. DCC collected over 120 boxes for the AMEN appeal, some of which I was able to personally hand out. Many thanks to everyone for their support.
