Christmas Carol Singing 2016 – Place your vote
Thank you to everyone who voted. 94 votes were placed. This year’s chosen charity with 27% votes is Edinburgh Direct Aid.
Edinburgh Direct Aid is an all-volunteer international charity which has been working in refugee camps around the world since 1952, most recently Lebanon and the borders of Syria, where they are providing refugees who are living in very basic conditions with essential supplies (including food, clothing school equipment, surgical scrubs, water tanks etc), all funded and delivered by their volunteers. They are also involved in projects of training to encourage self-help where possible.
They are a small charity and everyone involved volunteers their time. When they raise money, that money goes directly to those who need it and it is put to use quickly.
