Samara's Aid Appeal LogoClothing and Equipment Collection for Syrian Refugee Camps

Thank you for being interested in this appeal. By donating some of the following and helping to fund the transport costs you will be helping some of the 23.5 million people affected by the war in Syria who currently need humanitarian assistance and many of whom are living in refugee camps.

The Samara Aid Appeal will be collecting clothes and equipment and arranging its shipment over to Syria in January 2017.

If you would like to donate we would welcome the following:

  • WINTER & MID SEASON CLOTHES, new and used – adult, child & baby
  • COATS & SNOW-WEAR, new and used – adult, child & baby
  • NEW UNDERWEAR only (no used), with tags or in packaging
  • SHOES (clean) No summer shoes, in immaculate condition
  • BOOTS & WELLY BOOTS, clean
  • BLANKETS, sleeping bags, sheets & towels in immaculate condition
  • MOSES BASKETS and baby bedding
  • NAPPIES, SANITARY TOWELS & Incontinence pads

PLEASE WASH all clothes, blankets and bedding, and clean and polish shoes before donating. Everything should be in excellent condition with working zips, buttons & poppers intact, stain free with no holes. We cannot ship over anything to Syria that does not meet these criteria.

To get all the above to Syria costs about £10 per box. If you can, please consider making a donation (suggested 50p per item) to help us cover the shipping and transport costs. You can do this by cheque or cash at the drop-off, or electronically through the Samara web-site at samarasaidappeal.org.
