Our friends at ‘Vision of Good Hope, Moldova’ have sent us a message to announce the launch of their annual log appeal.
They write: “As the days get shorter and the nights gets colder and longer, our thoughts turn towards the people in and around the village of the orphanage. Some of them have already been walking around the village and the riverbank collecting small branches that have fallen of the trees.
“Over the years our annual distribution of logs to the people in the village has become a very much anticipated and well needed event. With the price of gas increasing and the cost of living rising, the number of families in need is staggering so this year we are hoping we can help even more families than we did last year.
“We are very aware that many people in our own community are struggling with the cost of living crisis but we would hope that even again people will support us financially.
“A trailer of logs costs about €50 and although it takes a bit of managing for families to make the logs last over the winter months it still makes a big difference.
For anyone wishing to purchase logs as an alternative Christmas Gift, gift certificates are available. Contact email@example.com”
