Furnished a Flat! Thank You

Our supporters responded immediately and generously to a recent urgent appeal to help furnish a flat. The partner of a young Afghan man we support and their baby daughter were recently allocated a flat to live in – a great leap forward from the hostel room they were all living in previously! However, the flat was without any furnishings or flooring – just self-levelling compound throughout – so our Founder Roger Pask wrote to our supporters to ask for help in making the flat habitable for the family.

Donations of money, furniture and white goods flew in! The family are now settling into their new home and community, with all the furniture and white goods they need, and the carpets are on the way. In the meantime, they’re giving the walls a fresh lick of paint. We haven’t quite raised all the money we needed yet but we’re not far off.

Here are some ‘before’ photos – we’ll update this with the ‘after’ photos once the carpets are down!…
