CHRISTIAN AID WEEK … DO YOU LIKE TO WALK? …
– Together we’re stronger than the storms –
✮ In Berkshire, you can join in activities where churches and Christian Aid Groups will be raising awareness about the over 40 million people all over who are displaced within their own countries and raise funds for the work of God’s Kingdom.
✮ On Saturday, May 19th, you can join us on a 5, 10 or 15-mile walk to give poverty the boot in the stunning Oxfordshire countryside.
✮ Please see poster attached or contact the Oxford Office on 01865 246 818 or contact the Walk organiser- John Russell on 07917 800989 for further information and registration.
✮ For more than 70 years, with the help of our amazing supporters, Christian Aid has been helping change the lives of people, of all faiths and none, living in poverty around the world.
✮ This Christian Aid Week, we need to #StandTogether and help families like those of Marcelin, Jocelyne and Vilia to weather future storms. In Haiti, Marcelin raised his three daughters alone. They’ve endured some of the worst natural disasters on earth. They’re not just survivors. They’re fighters. But they’re only so strong. They won’t survive the next hurricane without your help.
✮ Marcelin Abellard and his daughters Ketia, Linda and Keshna (left to right in the photo) still haven’t recovered from Hurricane Matthew.Marcelin doesn’t expect them to survive if another hurricane hits.
✮ Christian Aid Week unites kingdom builders like you from all walks of life. We step out in mission for our neighbours like Marcelin, because we believe in life before death. We believe God’s kingdom is stronger than the storms.
✮ This Christian Aid Week, you can be in their corner. You can help them build a home that will weather the next storm, so they won’t need to fight to survive anymore. With £210, we could pay for two days’ construction training for a local builder in Haiti. The builder could then build secure, comfortable homes for people like Marcelin, giving them a safe place to weather the next disaster, and a fighting chance to build a better life.
✮ Thank you for your support.
