To provide much needed humanitarian aid to the disadvantaged children of the Ukraine who live in orphanages
This project will provide much needed clothing, shoes and bedding to get help get the children through the harsh winter
June 2011 - October 2011
Charity information: Mustard Seed Relief Mission
The children who live in orphanges do not have access to clothing shoes and bedding. The children so suffer from colds, flu and chest infections these are most common place in the winter
We hope to send good quality second hand clothing that people in the UK no longer want - and might throw away to help keep the children warm during winter
By providing warm clothes, shoes that fit and good quality bedding will help towards maintaining the good health of the children.
To reduce illness for the children who live in the orphanges of the Ukraine

What success will look like
The charity is in contact with the orphanages and will gather information and data regarding illnesses that the children contract.
The long tern changes will show a reduction in illness that the children contract over the winter time. We hope to see a 20% decrease in illnesses such as flu, chest infections and colds over the next year
This project could be at risk if we do not collect enough donations of clothing, shoes and bedding. Also if the £4000 it costs to send a lorry over to the Ukraine is not raised.
Any donors would be kept up to date via monthly e mail and photos of the children receiving their items on a six monthly basis
