In July 2023, we at Wave served 1302 hot meals, welcomed 16 new arrivals, distributed 541 clothing items, 17 sleeping bags and 535 hygiene items, ran 253 showers, charged 74 phones and powerbanks, and washed 150 loads of laundry.
FIREFLY HOPE PROJECT DISTRIBUTION
This month, Natalie from the Firefly Hope Project came and joined us for a distribution. She brought with her clothes, shoes, hygiene items and sweet treats – we distributed around 25 packages to everyone who needed one. The Firefly Hope Project have been joining us once or twice a year since we started Wave and it’s always great to know we can rely on their support!
NORTH MACEDINIA RAIL ACCIDENT
In July, one of our service users very sadly passed away after
a rail accident in North Macedonia. We have since been supporting his family in trying to bring him back home so that they can lay him to rest and set up a fundraiser to cover the costs. Desite needing 6,500EUR, by early August we had raised the whole amount thanks to over 150 generous donors. We thank all those who gave money and showed solidarity with Ismail and his family.
