East Africa Emergency Appeal!


Christian Aid has launched an appeal to raise money for people in East Africa affected by severe food shortages caused by draught and other factors.  I have attached a poster (Click Here) and below is a link to our website where people can make a donation and/or find a prayer. 


Please could you circulate this to your contacts and/or mention it to people you’re meeting this week.

 

Here is some suggested wording you could use, but feel free to change it:

 

As you read this, 10 million people across East Africa are facing severe food shortages caused by a combination of drought, irregular harvests, high food prices and displacement.

 

Christian Aid are supporting partners in Kenya, Ethiopia and Sudan to provide life-saving assistance including tanks of water to villages experiencing the worst drought conditions, food for families and animal feed to protect livestock that are so crucial for the pastoralists’ survival. They will also be supporting recovery and helping communities to be more resilient to future crises.

They urgently need your help.  Could you hold a collection in your church?

 

Call 0870 078 7788 to order emergency giving envelopes for your congregation, or email and request item F1952E – emergency envelopes.

 

Please include the people of the region in your prayers this Sunday. Information for prayer and giving can be found at www.christianaid.org.uk/east-africa-appeal

 

Your church’s prayers and giving will be vital in helping to avert disaster for many thousands of people in communities across East Africa – thank you.
