First topic message reminder :

Thought it would be good to list the items you lovely forum members donated to the Silistra Orphanage so far.

Dougie and myself wish to thank you for your generous donation that you posted to us - we are just over the moon with the items so far from Ashley Admin and Guy Mugshot.



You are truly little superstars


Oddy

This is wonderful news. How many children are there in total at the orphanages you support. Please let me know

Hi Chrissy

Thank you for your post. We have in total supported 9 orphanages but our main orphanages are in Silistra we have 3 orphanages there The Dicmho has 55 children ranged for 7 to 18 years, Malek has 16 children ranged from 3 to 12 and the Baby/Medical orphange has 70+ chldren. We also support the Disability Day Centre where there are children for 3 to 30+ with 48 residents and a various people drop in. We also have the Home for the Elderly with 110 residents - This year we have taken on the Adult Disability Home with 130 adults and we also take goods to three poor villages and the doctor surgery. We are a none profit organization - we are not about money but only the goods that are donated to us - we do for time to time fund raise to obtain certain items. Dougie and myself do all the collecting, sorting, packing, labeling, palleting and organise the laoding and unloading of the lorry. We collect goods, clothing shoes, toys. toiletries, stationery etc all year round and in Sept we ship the 22+ palles of goods to Bulgaria, we then fly out and meet the lorry at the other side so all the goods are delivered to the Dimcho. Each organization now make their own arrangements to collect the goods from the Dimcho. We have a big Garden Party every year and some of the goods are opened on the day and given to the children - Willowsend is our official photographer and has covered the event for the past 4 years, you can see some of the photographs on the gallery here or on our website and facebook below. Dougie and I also cover and fill 100's of shoeboxes for our orphanges and others and they are all kept ready for Christmas.

Last year we managed to send 40 children to Sunny Beach on an all inclusive holiday (unortunately we can't do that this year unless we pay 50% of the cost) We also managed to raise funds via the Garden Party and followers to buy 40 new bunk beds which is pretty amazing really. Our project this year is to sponsor a bike, Chris our mod an web designer is working on the chart just now and it will go on the facebook page. Admin, Chris and Bulgaria Bill are our back up team and they support us any way they can.

So there you have it Chrissy, bet you are sorry you asked now I do get very excited and carried away with our cause, everytime soneone donates something it is just as exciting as the very first item back in 2008. Who would think a visit to the orphanage in 2008 has now led to this. Come and join the facebook and keep up to date. Special thanks to all our supporters and sponsors for all your help, you are all just amazing.
This picture say it all for us

I am so happy to recieve your news and happy that every thing has gone so well for you with all of this.
We support the orphanages in Yambol and our local kinder gardens and to date every thing has gone very too.
I love to sew that is why i asked how many children you have and i have lots of peices of material I have made christmas stocking for just about every child locally in our small town and for the orphanages.
So what i am saying is Will 200 christmas stockings and 100 christmas bags for the adults cover your numbers and would you like them?
I make them as i go through the year and they will be ready for you all being well.
The smaller items you have donated to you will be great for filling them with and they all look so festive at christmas
Just let me know If i can make them i will
chrissy xxx God bless all of you for the work you do

WOW!! :Great:Chrissy thank you so much that sounds wonderful s. It is getting more and more difficult for me now to do the shoeboxes as I also work full time and each year we are taking on more and more organizations, so basically I work 24/7 so xmas stocking would be fab than I could send the goods over and let the staff make up the stocking. You could come to the Garden Party in Sept with them or Mick who also lives in your areas, I am sure will be happy to bring them with them when they come. This is good news thank you so much I look forward to hearing from you, if you have photos send it to me on pm thank you again.

T T T to our volunteers/donors/sponsors in Belgium and the Netherlands and Bulgaria for all your support: I am happy to say I managed to find a donor Global Logistics in the Netherlands who has helped us by picking up the 7 pallets from Belgium and taking to their warehouse until BA Cargo Partners from Sofia can arranged for their transport to another lorry and delivered to Silsitra on or around 18th April. We are just delighted and overwhelmed at the generosity of the Belgium people and our 12 year old Tyra. Tyra's Project will continue and our sponsors 'ON THE ROAD' will continue to collect a cubic metre every month from Belgium on their UK trip.

golly gosh if I had know the size of the truck I would have asked them to come to the UK and pick our lot us. Now I have to find a sponsor for the transport as we have only just learned we do not have a sponsor this year

Hi Guys

It is this time of year again when our good friend Borislav at Nominal Ltd Accounting in Bulgaria makes his donation to us for the Silistra orphanage. As you all know Boris is a long term donors. Boris at Nominal Ltd (Accounting Co in Bulgaria) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] has been with us now for 4+ years and each year he makes a donation to the Silistra Orphanage of 10% on every tax return the Company does. He was our very first Bulgarian Company who came forward to help us and as you can see we have his banner at on the forum. Borislav has made his donation again this year which is fantastic and we are delighted. We will put this donation to good use perhaps new helmets/viz jackets for all the total of 56 bikes to include the 10 to go over in Sept. Special thanks Borislav for your continual support you are just a fantastic chap. Angel

Not only that, Our wonderful sponsor Richard at Sewage Solutions [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] also made his donation early in the year and also send 5 new helmets to me here in the UK so they will go over in Sept too. Richard has a banner on top of the forum. He has been with us for 3 years. He even made the trip to Silistra last years Garden Party. He is a real nice man and every year he comes forward, like Borislav without fail to support our children any way he can. Richard you are a star!!! g

We are very lucky to have these two companies helping us. Thank you both you are just amazing.

Look at these wonderful tops hand knitted by a group of ladies in Peterborough and donated to us. All 140 of them. Most of them will go to our new project The Maternity Unit in Silistra as well and the other orphanages. s g

Strange as it may seem, I've met this family and they are all fantastic, so I'm not really surprised to hear of their support..the world needs more people just like them.
