Harlow Foodbank and Bump to Five support urgent appeal for new-born baby items to Ukraine
Charity / Mon 4th Apr 2022 am30 09:29am
MRCT are supporting AirX Foundation to get urgent aid out to hospitals near Kyiv for babies who have lost parents in the fighting there.
They are contributing stocks of formula milk and other items from Bump To Five, and inviting Foodbank supporters to make their own contributions should they wish.
If you can get new-born formula milk and/or nappies to them by end of Thursday 31st then AirX will pick them all up for a chartered flight that goes direct from Stansted Airport on Saturday.
Andy Thornton commented “This is a heart-breaking situation and we thought our supporters would like to help if they could.
It is a specific request to support new-borns, many of whom are now orphans, taking refuge in hospitals that have been attacked.
AirX are not taking other items right now, and neither can we – but if people want to help Ukraine – this is a good way to play out part.”
You can drop off new-born formula and new-born nappies at:
Foodbank baskets at Tesco/Sainsbury’s/Asda when you buy them there.
St Pauls Church in the town centre between 11 and 12 each day
The Store house here at Housham Hall farm between 9 and 3 each day
The AirX Hanger: Diamond Hanger out at Stansted Airport.

We are grateful for Your Harlow publicising this story - please note that the deadline for the appeal has now passed. We are glad to say that the plane left for Ukraine with hundreds of much needed nappies, tins of baby milk and clothes for newborn children. Thanks again Harlow!!
