We've had not much success getting the pads actually sent. Originally we were all set to post off, but our contact at Counterpart left their job, so we've had to start discussions from scratch with the new woman in that role. Who has said that contacting one of the Counterpart agencies closer to Australia would be a better idea than sending to them, and we are now waiting to hear back from them.
The caucus Children's fund was also contacted again, so far no reply.
(I ended up getting ziplockbags donated - so that was at no charge to us)
