Beginning in 2019, the Rotary Club of Adelaide, facilitated the collection and shipment of quality second-hand warm winter clothing for children aged 0 – 12 years old. The goods were air-freighted a poor part of rural Serbia for a Romani community (Lescovac) in time for distribution before Christmas. The winter is bitter in this part of Serbia, the Romani are an oft-ignored indigenous group and their need is enormous.
In the project’s first year, we have helped some 80 families with ~250 kg of clothing.
We expect to repeat this clothing drive, and fund the collection, packing, customs charges and transport on an annual basis with collections starting annually in September.
