SALFORD AIDS ROMANIAN KIDS
 

Star date: 9th October 2011

13 TONS OF AID NEEDED FROM ECCLES TO ROMANIA

In just over a week's time, a 20ft container will leave Eccles to help disadvantaged children in Romania. It's going to orphanages, care homes and camp sites.

LIM, a registered charity based in Eccles, is looking for help from Salford people to fill the container – everything from food, to clothes, to fridges.

Lighthouse International Ministries, or LIM, is a registered charity based in Eccles which has been helping out Romanian children who live in some of the worst poverty in Europe. Some of the stories are quite harrowing and hopeful…

Stefan was six months old when one of LIM's workers found him in an orphanage, tied to a cot and bandaged from the neck down. When the bandages were removed it was found that he had only stumps of arms and legs. Nearly twelve years later, Stefan has been fitted with prosthetic limbs and has been happily reunited with his family.

Radu was brought to a camp from a gypsy village in a wheelbarrow because he couldn't walk. He was 14 but didn't speak and was severely underweight. Two years on, Radu ran out to greet the team arriving from England. He had put weight on, and was walking, talking and eating like a 'normal' 16-year-old.

These are some of the LIMA successes but the works continues and the charity is asking Salford people to help out by filling a 20ft container with 13tons of humanitarian aid. And they've got just over a week to do it. They are asking for donations of…

• Clothes / shoes – in good condition
• Furniture
• White goods (Fridges, freezers, washing machines, cookers)
• Educational materials
• Hygiene products (toothpaste, soap, shampoo)
• Decent computers in working order
• Foodstuffs – in date, non-perishable

LIM can collect donations or arrange for you to drop them off. Just call Jeff Stoker on 07967 751494 or e-mail jeff@stoker67.freeserve.co.uk

Everything must be received by Tuesday October 18th at the latest.

Nothing to do with xenophobia . Just elementary economics . Why fill the world's begging bowl , when we have so many needy here ? Especially the aged , many of whom fought for this dreadful hellhole britain , and are condemned to freeze to death this winter , as thousands have before ? The truth is they are seen as a burden in this hellish , greedy , self-serving society , a lesson from the evil thatcherites. This rotton society should help it's own citizens first , second and last . If you want to donate , donate to AGE CONCERN .

Does anybody really think that giving our cast offs to pensioners will save anybody in this country from freezing to death this winter. Yeah right! The only way to prevent any deaths is to stop the utility companies from squeezing us dry while they amass huge profits. But then the usual xenophonbic claptrap is bound to emerge when anybody tries to do the humanitarian thing abroad. It makes me feel truly nauseous.

I agree with your sentiments , Caroline . But how much of this Aid will end up being sold in Romanian shops , or stolen by the corrupt authorities ? One thing is certain , the corrupt Romanian authorities will be there to leech whatever they can . The Romanian peoples should rise up and smash their corrupt rulers .

SALFORD CITY MAYOR MISLEADING STATEMENTS ON DEVELOPER CASH

Star date: 19th April 2018

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
