Refugee relief

'Refugee Relief' is a charity established by Bob Parfitt a Rotarian, which helps in relief of poverty, overseas aid, famine relief and economic development of communities. The charity also provides support in Bansang hospital in Gambia and in Sierra Leone providing children with basic essentials in the school as well as desks and chairs, and even an actual building!

Food items such as cooking oil, sugar, flour, salt and pasta are collected and volunteers help to pack and load food parcels which are transported across Europe to be gratefully received by people living in Croatia, where life is still difficult for many, especially the underprivileged after the Balkan war.

Bob Parfitt also collects clothes, bedding, food, toys, sewing equipment, bicycles, baby bundles and hundreds of beautifully knitted blankets.
