The Confederation of the Independent Trade Unions in Bulgaria (CITUB) will join an initiative of the UK’s Communication Workers Union to provide humanitarian aid to refugees in Turkey ahead of the coming winther.

A convoy of Royal Mail trucks will set out on a 3,000-kilometer long journey across Europe from Birmingham to Istanbul on October 30. It will carry warm clothes and items for babies and toddlers, toiletries and other essential items, CITUB said on Saturday.

A vehicle carrying much needed supplies donated by CITUB members will join the convoy which is expected to arrive in Sofia late on November 2.
