Last year CVS – Bulgaria, in partnership with Caritas Sofia and thanks to the many volunteers (Bulgarian and foreign) focused its efforts in support of the project for refugee children in the Integration Center at the State Agency for Refugees.

In the summer we continued to work on the integration of children and young asylum seekers and visited the center in Banya. We met wonderful people, heard their stories, we had fun together and we left with a slight bitterness, but promised to come back.

In December, thanks to you, we will not go back empty-handed: with Caritas Sofia the Counsel of Woman Refugees in Bulgaria we organize a collection of garments and belongings, with which to warm the hearts of the people that lost their homes and are forced to seek refuge in country.

  • Clothes and things, which is the most pressing need, are:
  • More men and fewer women and children’s winter jackets
  • More men?s winter clothes, less ladies and children winter clothes
  • More men?s winter boots, less women and children’s winter shoes
  • Toys
  • Sheets and blankets, new socks and underwear
  • Pots, pans, forks, spoons

Clothes and shoes you donate should be clean, in good condition and adjusted to the season. We’ll be grateful if you pack them in strong bags. Donations will begin to be taken on Wednesday, December 5th from 14:00 to 17:00 at the office of CVS – Bulgaria (Gurgulyat 30, 1st floor), where we will welcome you with a warm cup of tea and a grateful smile. On Thursday, all day from 11:00 to 19:00 and Friday from 9:00 to 13:00 will also be at your disposal and we will expect your donations. If you have questions write to cvs.katerina @ or call 0884766459.
