Together, we can help stop this climate crisis. But we need to act now.
This Christian Aid week (10th – 16th May) over 100 volunteers from Southwell and the villages of Edingley, Fiskerton, Halam , Morton, Normanton and Upton will walk from door–to–door to post a donation envelope through your door to support the work of Christian Aid.
Christian Aid is helping some of the world’s poorest peoples in 37 countries battle both climate chaos and the Coronavirus pandemic.
This climate crisis hurts us all. But people living in poverty fight the worst of it every day.
From drought to flooding, climate change robs people of control over their lives. Extreme weather means people like Rose in Kenya are struggling to survive without a reliable source of water.
Rose walks for six hours every day to fetch water for her grandchildren. She tries hard to give them the kind of life she remembers from when she was a girl: when the rivers flowed with water and the crops bore fruit.
Rose and her grandchildren shouldn’t have to go hungry. A simple earth dam, built with the help of Christian Aid’s partners and your donations, could completely change her life.
With a dam full of water, Rose would be free from her long, painful journeys. She’d have time to grow fresh vegetables for her family to eat. And it would help Rose and her neighbours reduce the spread of Covid 19.
Every donation will change lives.
Each envelope will indicate local drop off points for donations or please donate via Southwell Christian Aid Committee at its Just Giving page: Stop Rose’s Long Walk for Water. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Southwell-Christian-Aid-Committee1
Please stand with people like Rose and join us by donating this May.
