Communication Workers Union (CWU) Humanitarian Aid Charity
We started off by collecting money for the charity. One of the workers for the Charity (Alex’s Grandad Paul O Neil ) visited our school to explain what the charity was about and where the money goes. Their main focus was helping orphanages and care homes in Eastern European countries where the governments are too poor to help the sick ,disabled and orphaned.
The total collected by sixth class came to about two hundred euro. He told us to keep the money and that he would send us a wish list so that we could see what they needed. It turned out they needed Johnsons and Pampers baby wipes. The baby wipes were being sent to Chisneu in Moldova . We bought the baby wipes and stamped them with the school label. They were collected by the Union on the 22nd of June. They were loaded into a truck and the sent off to An Post and Eircom to be delivered to the orphanages in September.
Here are some photos of us loading the truck.
