Half of the proceeds of The Annual Mary McGrath Table Quiz normally in aid of St. Brigid’s Camogie Club, this year was decided to go towards UNICEF which help Ukrainian aid during these awful times. St. Brigid’s Camogie Club also matched this donation to UNICEF. Below is the acknowledgment letter from UNICEF. Thanks to everyone who supported us in anyway.
I just wanted to drop you a note from Ukraine to say a huge thank you for your generous donation of €1124.00 to help children like 15-month-old Artur. I met him and his family when I visited an air raid shelter in Lviv. This is the second time they’ve had to flee their home because of the violence, so the fact that people like you care about them means so much.
To a mother at her wit’s end after travelling on foot with her small children in the bitter cold for three days, your gift of clean water is so precious. To a child who’ll spend yet another night sleeping in an underground bunker instead of their bed at home, your gift of a blanket is so comforting.
Thanks to the amazing help of people like you in Ireland and across the world, UNICEF has already delivered several tons of hygiene products, including diapers, disinfectant, and wipes to a temporary refugee centre at the Palanca crossing point on Ukraine’s border with Moldova.
With your help, we won’t stop until every child is reached. Thank you again.
