Another truckload of gifts and aid was packed by Blythswood for the people of Moldova last night (Friday August 30th) in Stornoway.

Blythswood works with Biserica Sfanta Treime (Holy Trinity Church) in Nisporeni, and Vulcanesti Church, Moldova, to help the community in and around Nisporeni and Ungheni.
