Helen has heard from Link to Hope about the areas and people in Romania who received the shoeboxes, some of which we sent. Altogether 43,900 were shipped over. Do look out for a display in church of some of the people who received them. Having a box is so important for families and older people who live in very difficult circumstances. Six of the Team from Worthing went out to Romania to deliver them. Thank you Merle and Helen.
