Danutz, who has been off work for months, has left the Centre for a week to stay with Cipri, a former Daniel Centre resident. The 3 social work students, who have been doing their practicum there, will cook Christmas dinner on December 18th while Jeremy Campbell, the new CEO is in Romania. He will be there for a 3-day visit to Ukraine with Balazs and Olga – their new Ukrainian organiser – to make their next Shoebox film. They will do this in co-operation the Heritage Foundation and Light of Reformation in Ukraine.
Contractual negotiations for renting their Cluj depot have stalled as the principal renter is not willing to meet their minimum rent price.
Balazs has just returned from a 21-day sponsored trek in the Annapurna range of the Himalayas in Nepal.
Christian Aid funds have been delayed for the first time and that is putting pressure on the Ukrainian partners.
Balazs will then accompany James Campbell as they fly out on January 10th to visit the projects that Blythswood sponsors in Africa.
