Public Service Announcement:
BRITISH AFGHAN WOMEN’S SOCIETY URGENTLY NEEDS TRUCKING COMPANY TO DONATE TRANSPORT SERVICES TO TAKE WINTER BABY CLOTHES FOR AFGHAN CHILDREN FROM LONDON TO LIEGE AIRPORT IN BELGIUM.
Date: 15 October, 2012
FOR ON-AIR NARRATION:
The British Afghan Women’s Society in London has collected nearly three tons of warm winter baby and children’s clothes to send to the refugee camps in Kabul, Afghanistan. But urgent help is needed in transporting the cargo from London to Liege Airport in Belgium. If you own a trucking service and can donate your company’s services please call 208 3736350. At least one large truck is needed.
More than 35,000 people are living in unheated tents where temperatures will likely dip below zero this winter, making it a dangerous time for the poverty-stricken families who often lack adequate blankets and clothes. Last winter the BBC reported that at least 23 children under the age of five froze to death in the camps. The donations will be flown to Afghanistan through the generous donated services of air cargo companies.
If you own a trucking service and can kindly donate your company’s services, please contact:
