Second Container on way - Jan 2013
The KWF is pleased to announce there is a second container on its way to Afghanistan, organised by Mike King and Clive O'Sullivan. It contains work clothing donated by Arco to be distributed by Afghan Action, computers donated by a girls' school here for a girl's school there, also under Afghan Action's care, and donated Medical supplies destined for the Ibn Sina Hospital Kabul from us. There is even some cricket gear donated through Francis Wauchope who has been instrumental in arranging the freighting of the container. We are grateful to the HQ RLC (TA) and 562 squadron 151 (London) Transport Regiment for moving the container out of Harlow to a distribution point for completion and then to Southampton, both moves in appalling weather.
