Many of the Healing Hands Network clients live solely in charity clothing and donations,
but what is often forgotten about is underwear, which is in short supply.
Going well beyond a daily necessity, and remembering that many of the women who come for treatment are also survivors of rape camps and sexual torture, feminine, yet well-covering underwear can go a long way to bringing back that little bit of personal self esteem...
Fat Face underwear, for example, is all covering and yet feminine and, in my experience, lasts well (no stringy bits hanging off after just two washes)! You may even be tempted to get some for yourself after reading this (even if you don't have a gift token) and, if you are quick, there is a 3 for 2 offer currently running... if you do, could you possibly donate that extra pair to the people of Bosnia?
Any contributions, monetary or in kind, are always most gratefully received... as I write I have, through two most generous donations, now raised 25% of my £800 target but, really, every little helps. Every £11.43 - £13.33 donated, for example, will pay for work with one more client (based on seeing 6-7 clients a day). It would be lovely to have raised this by Christmas and so be able to confirm my place in Bosnia early in the New Year.
If you feel you'd like to donate financially, you can do through MY DONATE, click HERE - and Thank you very much indeed!
If you feel moved to donate some underwear, please call me on 07833545008 to arrange where to send it. I'll be very pleased to hear from you (and will plan to take an extra suitcase in anticipation)!
And "Liking" and "Sharing" helps spread the word, too...
Thank you, with much love, Julia x
