Dnipro Kids charity looking for unwanted football shirts

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Dnipro Kids volunteers are heading to Ukraine on Sunday 1 April for their next visit, and are looking for supporters to donate any unwanted kids football shirts to take over to those in need.

Supporters are encouraged to hand in child football strips that are in good condition to the West Stand reception area during regular office hours.

If you do not have any child strips you can also make a financial contribution through the Dnipro Kids website.

In September 2005 Hibs’ fans made a UEFA Cup trip to the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk and after witnessing the conditions suffered by local orphans, a handful of supporters organised a charitable collection.

Within a few months the idea has snowballed and the well meaning Hibernian support has an official charity to its name.

As well as purchasing items such as winter coats and boots it has also been used to purchase medical equipment and make repairs to the building where they live.

It has also been used to purchase baby food, baby essentials and clothing for a Crisis Pregnancy Centre in the hope that helping mothers that are struggling to cope can prevent children from becoming orphans.
