Romania Animal Aid Sept Aid Mission to Romania Appeal

In July 2011 our team visited Romania on a week long mission to deliver aid to where it was needed, met with mayors and decision makers, rescued animals left at the roadside..the list goes on and on. During our visit one thing was clearly obvious, it was no good us just doing one aid mission, or two or three, but regular aid missions needed to be organised on at least a bi monthly basis. So we made our minds up, bought a van,and are now planning Berthas (the RAA van pet name) first journey to Romania. The Aid mission will kick off on 22nd September.

The van that we have bought and customising to Defra standards will also be doubling as so many other things, we will be delivering aid, applying first aid at the roadside, rescueing injured and abused animals as well as delivering donations to those that need it the most. We need so many items to fill that van every other month, we simply are unable to do this alone...We need your help.

Please note we will be driving on route to Romania through France, then onto Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, and finally, Romania. So we can arrrange collection points with our European friends so they can help with donations on route as well.

There are two ways you can help with this appeal, you can donate items or funds to buy items needed.
The items that we need are listed below as well as a justgiving link and paypal link for you to donate monies if you are unable to help with items but still want to help with the appeal.

We urgently need your help, and hope that in some way you can help fill Bertha so she can deliver her precious donations to those who are in such despetare need. Please contact us to arrange collection or for delivery address.
