Clothes start their journey to Iraq for the Winter Clothes Appeal 

 

The response to the appeal was huge and now all the clothes, shoes, bedding and baby equipment contributed as a church have been loaded into a van today and driven to the UK collection point in Northamptonshire.

Once a lorry’s worth of donations is complete, it takes approximately four weeks to get all of these clothes out to Iraq: approximately a week to deal with the customs formalities and then organise the lorry, then the journey takes around three weeks as the queues at the Turkey/Iraq border are miles long for trucks crossing into Iraq (13km in December).

We saw on Sunday a video showing the scale of God's provison in this operation and so take a look at the relief brought when the packages are recieved to those living in freezing conditions and makeshift homes using the link to Facebook below.
