Second transport with aid to Persecuted Christians
Foundation SOS FOR LIFE delivered 2 tracks, 40 tons of aid to Persecuted, who found refuge in Kurdistan in the region of Duhok, Zakho.
On Dec 10th 2014 Foundation SOS FOR LIFE delivered 40 tons of aid to refugees in area of Duhok in Kurdistan. Two tracks, each 20 tons capacity were fully packed with blankets, mattresses, beds for babies, winter clothes for adults and children, to help refugees survive winter. In next transports we would like to deliver dry food and cleaning supplies. We have an idea to get there mobile kitchens and bakeries, that they would have on daily bases bread and hot soup. To buy mobile kitchen cost is about 1200 USD. To buy mobile kitchen with capacity of 40 000 breads per day is 14 000 USD, underlined Fr. Tomasz Jegierski, asked about what they are in need. Aid delivered with financial assistance from Marshal Office of Malopolska. Value of assistance 67 000 USD. We delivered help of value 143 537.54 USD.
Special thanks to Basia Ziembicka president of SOS FOR LIFE Foundation, who did collect all goods for both transport on airplane and now 2 tracks. She did collect goods already for 3 next tracks, we will be sending soon. For her dedication to help persecuted and personally sorting and packing all goods. Holy Masses where said in Kurdistan also in her intentions. Great thank you.
