Dress Distribution #54 - Children of Malabon Manila (c-o Norie Bordador) Parcel 1C

This is the last parcel of 3 for the children of Malabon Manila which I hope to send as soon as I can as I hardly have a space to walk around in the garage (not good in case of emergency). It is a parcel of big-sized dresses I have accumulated in the last 18 months and finally I found a group who can distribute it on my behalf. These requires teens between the ages of 16 to 19 (including boys) and even perhaps 20 due to the size of the dresses and shorts. It has the less number of dresses and pairs of shorts but the most heavy box I have ever packed I had to sit down and catch my breath after it has been sealed. I think (except for a few)  this will be the last time I will accept these type of dresses as they are difficult to distribute and are quite heavy and bulky too. It is not that I do not appreciate everything that I receive but sometimes I also have to think of whether I am capable of packing or lifting the box when it is packed. Fortunately, this parcel will be picked up so I dont have to worry about lifting.

Here is the parcel of 38 dresses and 18 pairs of shorts -
and here are the contents of the parcel -
made possible by the following donors -
1) Betty Barrett
2) Linda Smyth
3) Ladies of Kapunda Sewing Group
