Bring warmth to the cold and hungry in Eastern Europe and the Balkans this winter
Eastern Europe suffers from poverty and very cold winters.
Countries like Albania, Bulgaria, North Macedonia, Romania and Serbia are also suffering from economic collapse as a result of factory closures and the loss of tourism. Unemployment levels are dangerously high and there is little money to buy essential food and logs for heating. On top of this, Moldova and parts of Romania have experienced a year-long drought that has greatly affected crop yields. Farmers have no income and the cost of animal feed has risen dramatically.
This winter, many of TEN’s partners will again offer assistance to the most vulnerable people in their communities. Without the generosity of UK Christians only a small number of elderly people and families can be helped. Donating money towards TEN’s WinterHelp Appeal enables our partners to offer hot meals to children, buy and distribute food parcels, supply logs for stoves and other vital provisions. This costs much less than it would to source and send supplies from the UK.
Our partners in Europe have requested these essential gifts for those living in extreme poverty. Choose below either the Winter Bundle or any of the individual gifts included in the bundle:
