Winter Warmer Parcels

In January 2015 working with Cllr Joyce Bosnjak and Mansfield District Council (MDC) we decided to start our first winter warmer project for the over 60’s living in the Mansfield Woodhouse area.

It has been documented that in these austere times some elderly people are having to switch off their heating in the winter months to save money and we all felt that it is important that we do everything we can to ensure our elderly are kept warm through the winter months.

Armed with 600 parcels containing fleece blankets, thermal hats scarves and gloves and several students from The Bramble Academy we spent an afternoon giving away the free parcels to the elderly in the community. MDC kindly distributed the majority to people they assessed as the most vulnerable.

We are hoping that after the success of this years project that this will become an annual event.

The Peaceful (uhuru) Trust is currently involved in various projects.

In communities torn apart by hunger, famine and regional war we are desperately working hard to provide a stable environment for families to grow and live together. We provide a means for them to stand up on their own feet rather than to live on handouts alone.

For this reason the trust provides grain to grow their own rather than food rations, we dig freshwater wells so that each community has clean water not just for human consumption but also for livestock and farming.

We are in the process of digging fresh water wells in various remote villages.

We are also involved in the community to help provide an infrastructure for education for the children in the villages, this helps to eliminate child labour and encourages them to learn.

We build schools, provide books, pens, pencils, tables and chairs as well as teachers where needed. Our aim is to get as many children in to education as possible so in turn they can better themselves and provide a better standard of living for their families.

While this is very rewarding and nothing quite makes your heart melt, like seeing a smile on the face of a child who attends school for the first time, the labour of love is very difficult.

We have assisted in building Hospitals. The funding required for these is huge and as such we rely very heavily on donations and contributions from our benefactors.

As highlighted over the recent years malaria is a big problem in Africa and while it is seen by many the world over as the  poor man’s disease this is a misrepresentation. Malaria is a disease that kills indiscriminately, whether you are poor, rich, young or old it will kill you if you do not get the life saving medicine you need to fight it.

We have helped to fund mosquito nets and set up medical centres in remote villages so that the most vulnerable can have access to medicine. In some areas of Africa families have to travel for hours by foot to get to the nearest hospital and on many occasions it is too late to save their loved ones.

Malaria costs Africa an estimate $12 billion a year. This equates to more than all aid provided by all the charities combined. When you consider that an Africa without malaria could be an Africa without debt and poverty it really puts in to perspective the need to eradicate this disease from the continent.
