Default Helping Hands Abu Dhabi

To add to what seems to be a healthy rivalry, we're in the process of setting up an Abu Dhabi branch of this erstwhile charidee..

http://www.thenational.ae/article/20...856544976/1297

We're starting slowly, despite the ace media coverage, but are definitely accepting donations! There are two of us actively invlolved at the moment, one on the island and one off. Please, please PM me if you're interested in helping out.

ps i'm not Blue Cat in disguise but your worst nightmare - another donation seeking bird!

Thank you!! No doubt we'll meet over a coffee ourselves..

AD woman has been a great source of volunteers, now we just need to get some more stuff to give out!

(1500dhs from a coffee morning is aces!)
