Contributions to Syrian refugees


We are collecting clothes and equipment for Syrian refugees

Would you like to contribute?

In collaboration with two national NGO charities AAPS and Bienvenidos Refugiados, IWC Asturias (the International Women’s Club Asturias) is organising a collection of goods for sending to the Syrian refugees. This is an appeal for your help.
