Highbury Farm, Monmouth
Kit for Kids is an idea that originated from a group of volunteers working on the beach at Leros, Greece. When boats filled with refugees come in at night, in the rain, or when the children are literally washed ashore or plucked from the sea, it is vital that they are stripped of their wet, freezing clothes and dried and dressed as quickly as possible.
The Kit for Kids clothes packs can literally save lives.
We are asking you to fill a bag with clothes. The bags are for the age group of 2 to 8 years old. Each bag is for one child, so all the clothes in it will be for that age and sex child. For instance - GIRL 5-6YRS... BOY 2-3YRS.
The clothes needed in the bags are:
1 x pants (new or pristine clean)
1 x vest
1 x socks (new or pristine clean)
1 x trousers
1 x long sleeved t-shirt top
1 x fleece/thick jumper/hoodie
1 x waterproof winter coat
1 x woolly hat/gloves
NO SHOES – we cannot guess the child’s shoe size – shoes are being collected separately.
We will provide everyone involved with a suitable bag. We will come and collect the filled bags from you on an arranged day, and organise delivery to the islands.
