Appeal for toiletries and summer clothes for 115 refugees in CY

Yesterday we were asked to share the following appeal from our friends at Tweet Cyprus:

Most of you are probably aware that 115 refugees were rescued off the coast of Larnaca yesterday. They are in urgent need of toiletries and summer clothes. If anyone is able to donate any items could you please bring them to St Barnabas church hall between 5.30pm and 7.30pm tomorrow (Tuesday 8th September). I would also be grateful if anyone could spare those hours and come down to help me sort the donations that come in. If you can help please comment or pm & please share – Many thanks.

Address for St Barnabas Church Hall : 153 Leontios A Street, Limassol, Cyprus

As we know how welcoming and hospitable us folks on this island are, we’re sure you’ll all do everything you can to help those fleeing war and oppression to feel welcomed in CY.

If you know of any other ways people can support, please send us a message on Facebook or tweet us @onthisislandmag.
