You probably know that Christian Aid works to support people of all faiths and none to rise out of poverty, helping people survive disasters, deal with the impact of climate change, find shelter, and have a voice in their communities.
This Christian Aid Week (14-20 May), Wendy, Pat, & I with our team want to support farmers in Malawi like Esther: determined women who want to make sure their children have enough to eat, and have all the schooling they want.
We also want to support the women and children in Sudan, even now facing terror and futures unknown.
So, we invite you to sponsor our 5 mile walk from Almondbank to North Inch, followed by a Fun Tea Party with some buns to match the ones they make in Malawi (yum yum)! Here we are preparing for our walk . . . . .
Your gift could help people around the world secure a safer, happier future for their children and grandchildren, and send a powerful message that we believe poverty can be beaten.
Christian Aid is very grateful for any pennies you donate, but you may be interested to know how far your gift would stretch . . . . .
£10 could pay for a 2kg bag of seeds to plant pigeon peas – a hardy, drought-resistant crop.
· £50 could provide pigeon pea seeds and farming tools for a family.
· £70 could buy a bicycle so that an experienced farmer can reach over 100 farmers in remote areas
· £100 could help provide a business training session, helping farmers to secure higher, fairer prices for crops.
