Some of the work we do takes time and can be complicated if some of the women we’re trying to help are not allowed access to public funds. Thankfully; we have been able to support some families with the generosity of our friends, who are our helpers and supporters. You too can also help us by sharing your resources or donate towards our welcome packs which consist of household, well-being and hygiene essentials (period products and toiletries, bath towels, bath loofers, sponge, shower flip flops, Internet dongles, phone credit, bus passes, art supplies, journals, notebooks, colouring books, stationary (colouring pencils pens, pencils), cuddly toys, artificial plants, water bottle, mugs, coasters, teaspoons, kitchen towels, plates, teas, tea strainer, hot chocolate, kettle, hat, scarf and gloves). We’re happy to come collect but if you’d also like to drop in to see us we can arrange that.
We really could also use your financial support because some of the work we do also costs money. £200 pays for one woman’s (NRPF) transport costs to access our services once a week for year. £360 pays for an interpreter for a woman whose first language is not English, for one hour, once a week for one year. £25 guarantees one woman a small bag of culturally appropriate food essentials to feed her family for two days at least. £50 Pays for childcare for one woman with one child to access mental health support or a mentoring session of up to an hour undistracted. £150 pays for childcare for one woman with children to attend the woman’s group space for up to three hours undistracted. Monthly donations help us to plan ahead and budget accordingly, otherwise ; we’re ever so grateful for any amount donated either as a one-off or monthly. Please make cheques payable to Project Esperanza SCIO. Cheques may be sent to our office at Project Esperanza 525 Ferry Road, Edinburgh, EH5 2FF.
