CLOTHING APPEAL

Please help the Syrian refugees in camp sites around the world stay warm this winter

Please donate clothes, blankets and other items

In 2016, the United Nations (UN) identified 13.5 million Syrians requiring humanitarian assistance.  The vast majority of whom are currently living in refugee camps in Turkey, Greece and other countries.  These places get extremely cold and many often die in the winter time as temperatures drop sharply.  As always, the worst affected are children.  Heartbreakingly, many have not known a life outside of a campsite.

We are asking for your help to send things they desperately need like clothes, blankets and other items.  Please help!

The Letterkenny Islamic Association is working with the Donegal Intercultural Platform and HeartShip – a charity that has dedicated itself to transporting clothes and other items to where they’re needed.

We are asking for your help to donate whatever you can for this worthy cause.  To respect the dignity of the refugees, we ask that you only donate items that you would use yourself (i.e. no torn, dirty or worn out items).

Please Donate

  • Clothes
  • Blankets
  • CUDDLY toys
  • Over the counter medication
  • Toiletries
  • Nappies
  • Shoes
  • Socks
  • NEW underwear

Please note that there is an URGENT need for nappies in the refugee camps.

Please drop off your clothes, blankets and other items to any one of the following collection points by the 16th of March:

Letterkenny Islamic Community Centre 2 Meadowbank Park, Long lane, Letterkenny Saturdays (11am- 1pm).
