Books to eSwatini

This week we have packaged up hundreds of books that we no longer use in our school for transportation to an orphanage in eSwatini (formerly known as Swaziland) as part of our links with the Challenge Ministries Swaziland charity.

Tesco Braunton very kindly gave us a wooden pallet to put the books on and The Soap Kitchen in Bideford gave us packaging material to secure the books on the pallet. Without donations from organisations such as these, the transportation costs would be prohibitive and projects like this would not be able to go ahead.

We are hoping that the children the books are being sent to will get a lot of pleasure from them and the books will have a new lease of life.
