Furniture donations improving life for refugees in Syria

DONATIONS to Kenilworth Lions’ furniture store are improving life for refugees in Syria.

Volunteers from the Helping Hands for Syria charity have been regular visitors to the Farmer Ward Road store this year, collecting donated beds, walking aids and other items to send the 3,000 miles to refugee camps in the war-torn country.

A lions spokesman said: “The initiative came from a Coventry University Hospital doctor, himself a frequent visitor to the store, who approached Kenilworth Lions to ask for our support.

“We were delighted to be able to offer practical help and support to a charity doing such wonderful work to help the many innocent victims of the Syrian conflict.”

The latest donated consignment recently arrived in one of the refugee camps in Aleppo, and the store will continue to support the Helping Hand for Syria.
