Shoebox Appeal 2016
Staff at Direct-tec have taken the time and money to put together a shoe box for the poorest children in Romania as part of the Link to Hope appeal.
A family friend of one of Direct-tec’s staff is a volunteer for Link to Hope. Every year she visits Romania to help the poorest and most marginalised through education and social care and to change lives by releasing communities out of Poverty. Her yearly trip involves her going over just before the Christmas period where she visits local orphanages and delivers them presents.
This year out of her own pocket she has arranged for lorries to take as many shoe boxes full of gifts which are given to orphans and also families who often have to make a choice between buying food or fuel at Christmas time as buying presents is just not a priority. Many of these families do not have running water or heating or electricity and life for them is a real struggle to survive.
