For the last number of years the Union has sent four volunteers as part of the CWU IRL/UK Humanitarian Aid Convoy. Two members from eir and two from An Post are granted paid release by the companies to take part in delivering much needed aid to orphanages in Eastern Europe. It is hard but very rewarding work.
The destination for the 2019 CWUHA Convoy is Moldova, with an exact date in September to be confirmed. Volunteers will be away for 2 weeks, but be prepared for 3 weeks away in case of unforeseen events!
The selection of all Convoy participants is at the absolute discretion of the CWUHA Trustees. It is the responsibility of the volunteers to raise funds and procure aid for their vehicle.
