We have reached our target of £3,500 which will pay for one container. We will now increase our target to £5,000 so that we have enough finances for two containers, as we have enough aid for two 40ft containers. These containers are ready to go and we need to send the containers as soon as possible as winter is approaching.
Aid Convoy specialises in sending 40 foot containers of essential aid to the needy people of Syria.
Items we send include:
- Tinned food
- New & used clothes
- Shoes & Boots
- Medical equipment
As a volunteer based charity it takes us between 3-6 weeks to sort, pack & prepare for a container, however, removing unwanted items & rubbish takes up our valuable time & expenditure.
The cost of a container is anything from £3,000 - £3,500. The breakdown is as follows:
- Cost of Container from UK to Turkey: £1,500 - £1,800
- Releasing of Container from to Syria border to Turkey: £1,400 - £1,600
- Releasing Container & transporting from Turkish/Syria border to Syria: £900
- Labour fees: £100 - £200
Costs will fluctuate due to many reasons such as Customs & security checks, changes in transport regulations, oil prices, closure of borders etc.
Aid Convoy is making an appeal to raise funds for its container expenditure.
We can't complete these projects without your assistance & donations,. Your donations will ensure that the crucial aid that you & others donate will reach the most deprived people of Syria.
