Story: Refat Mahmood, Community Links Leader, Owler Brook NI School.

Owler Brook Nursery Infant School parents, carers and children were recently involved in fund raising to support victims of the recent devastating floods in Pakistan. We wanted to help those who were doing everything possible to assist them.

Over a period of a week in September everyone in our school took part in bringing coins and notes to school and placing them on a large map of Pakistan in the school hall. This realised a total of £337 which has been donated to an organisation called ‘Doctors World Wide’. They are UK doctors and medical staff who are working on a voluntary basis in Pakistan to improve conditions in local communities.
