30 pallets with seven tons relief supplies ready packed

By an incredible team effort all donated supplies were packed ready for dispatch on Saturday. Nearly 40 helpers packed a total of approximately seven tons in huge cardboard boxes on 30 pallets. While in the morning many donations were still delivered and directly sorted in the front of the hall, after a short “briefing” the packaging started in the back of the hall. Sorted by unloading station and material, the many winter jackets and coats, shoes, sleeping bags, blankets, clothing and various other donations were carefully packed. The great effort was "crowned" with a common coffee break :-)

On Tuesday the company Schenker will pick up all the pallets and bring them into the dispatch warehouse in Bamberg. On Dec. 29, there the large truck will be loaded with a forklift and start its trip to Romania. As of January 01 our team will be there to distribute the donations, and we will report here on our website.

Thanks to all the donors, to the families and Ertl and Schrödel, to Hartmut Eckard, Mirabela Budaca and the whole team of the company Schenker, as well as to all helpers !!

Greetings to Liam and Emma in Oradea and our friends in Cluj - we are coming soon :-)

Start of collection campaign

With immediate effect we start collecting donations in kind for the transport to Romania and for distribution to the refugees. In January 2016, a team of FriendCircle WorldHelp will drive to Romania and distribute clothes. Last winter, we went to Romania and visited and supported families living in most difficult conditions e.g. in self-made huts in a landfill. We also support refugees in Bamberg and surrounding.
In the last few days, Tanja, Michael and friends have already taken many items stored in our warehouse in Trabelsdorf to our central collection point in Bamberg. There had been an overwhelming response to our donation appeal for Nepal last May, but unfortunately we could take only part of the material along with our flight baggage. The remaining sleeping bags, blankets and clothing are now very welcome for this project.
We thank the families Ertl and Schrödel, who placed at our disposal a large hall for the collection, sorting and packaging of the goods.
In the coming days we will further report on the collection campaign. Below you will find a first schedule for this campaign.

What is needed?

Sleeping bags, blankets, winter jackets, winter shoes, gloves for both adults and children

Bicycles in roadworthy condition
