Arrival of Shoe Boxes

You may like to see the note below and the photos from Chriss Bazell of Boscombe and Southbourne, who with two colleagues were in Romania for their shoebox delivery.  This message makes it all worthwhile. Hi Geoff I thought after all the hard work you and you Committee do in organising the shoeboxes district project you might like to see these photos to show you it is all worthwhile Rotarians Russell Celia and myself were present when these shoeboxes were delivered to young roma children at a kindergarten run by a charity supported by our club for many years They live in absolute poverty in shaks with no running water or electricity and at this time of year the temperatures average around -10 and with snow Until two weeks ago most of them had no proper shoes the charity with a company donation recently bought individual small boots for them The excitement and delight shown by them when receiving the shoeboxes literally brought tears to our eyes They do not get any other presents other than one from the charity Thank you for all the hard work you do its definitely worth it Best wishes Chris bazell Chairman International Committee Boscombe and Southbourne Rotary Club ShoeBoxIMG_0197
