It’s been an amazing trip!
Alison and Ruth have been busy distributing shoeboxes to disadvantaged children in Northern Romania in the town of Cluj, whilst also visiting various locations including the local municipal dump where around 400 people live in basic hovels scratching a living collecting plastic waste, cardboard, etc.
With over 2,000 miles now on the clock we have arrived in Bulgaria to distribute our final boxes to benefit both the elderly and disabled children in the Northern region of Shumen.
These trips are certainly not picnic runs, long days, plenty of manual work plus countless hours sat behind the steering wheel require a fair amount of stamina which Alison and Ruth having no previous experience have managed exceptionally well. Diet though has proved problematic given the variety of food experienced over the journey. Stomach problems have required amending our itinerary to gain much needed rest and recuperation before undertaking our return trip to the UK.
