Through our Aid Together Programme we accept unwanted good quality donated shoes, clothes, toys, sheets, towels, non-breakables kitchen items and Judaica. We sort and pack all donations and send them to communities in Belarus, both Jewish and non-Jewish. We also welcome unwanted end of line stock of new or quality seconds clothes and shoes. This is a totally volunteer-driven project, and encourages volunteering in Belarus as we teach community members how to play roles in community so that they can run the distribution at their end, ensuring all those who qualify to receive aid, do so in a fair and dignified manner.
Throughout the year we put on a range of different events; educational talks, films, supper quizzes, bingo jazz nights, cookery demonstrations with lunch, and so much more. You can subscribe to our database to receive our news and details of our events. Supporting our events helps us to create awareness of our work and raise money for the projects.
Our volunteers meet every Tuesday morning to sort and pack donations which are transported by road to communities, Jewish and non-Jewish, in Belarus. Volunteers meet once a week and we are always looking for additional help with this project.

Make a monthly donation which will help to send someone to Sunday School in the Polotsk and Slutsk Jewish communities.
Twin your Bar/Bat Mitzvah with someone in Belarus, or ask us for a pen-pal. It is very meaningful for young people in Belarus to be able to have a connection to someone from another country and equally for young people living outside of Belarus, it is hugely educational as they start to learn about the Jewish history of the region and the challenges Jewish communities of today face in a post-Soviet country.
Our Youth for Youth programme started in 2010 and year on year young adults between the ages of 17 and 30 travel to Belarus to run a summer programme and engage with their peers. This is a real social action initiative that continues to positively impact young adults from the UK and in Belarus year on year. The Youth for Youth members have social gatherings, fundraise and plan throughout the year. Contact us for more information.
