Children back to school all kitted out
With the help of the Communication Workers Union Humanitarian Aid (CWUHA), children living in our hostels were able to return to school with fully equipped schoolbags.
Heather O’Hanlon, Emergency Housing Team Leader said of the donations…
‘A massive thank you to the CWUHA for donating such amazing school bags and stationary for all the children returning to school. It was like a birthday for the children opening the bags, they were delighted with all the items. One child on returning from school said his friends could not believe all the things he had and he felt really happy and proud.
For the hostel staff this was particularly nice to hear as the children were obviously seen in a really positive light by their friends which in the past has not always been the case.
Thank you never seems enough!! But as always we sincerely appreciate all the work and thought put into these school bags.’
