Some more news from Sreepur – February 2021

Rubina Porter MBE reports-

I am delighted to say all is going well at Sreepur. It has been a very difficult time for us all but can you imagine the organising of the lockdown on Bangladesh.
Thirty of our most vulnerable people have received the Oxford vaccination. We are moving onward and upward, it all takes time.
The first delivery of masks from Sreepur arrived recently and were sold out in twelve hours. We are awaiting another delivery very soon.
Thanks for all your support.

New Year message from Rubina Porter M.B.E.

May I wish you all a very happy, safe and healthy New Year 2021. It has been a very difficult time for Ken and I and all the family and I thank you all for your support.
We are living in dreadfully trying times. Sreepur is doing everything to protect to our mothers and children.
May I thank all the members of MEG who supported our daughter Janette who is also  also a Trustee of Sreepur. She raised £700.00 with her world Fair Trade Sreepur porch sale in Aigburth. I also received £400 in donations. How kind of people to continue to support our amazing charity.
