Christian Aid Week 2021: A huge thank you!
Southwell Christian Aid Committee wishes to express its gratitude to all our supporters in Southwell, and the nearby villages of Edingley, Fiskerton, Halam, Morton, Normanton and Upton.
During May over 100 volunteers walked from door–to–door to post a donation envelope through your door. Thanks to your generous donations to the envelopes and our Just Giving page, we have been able to donate a fantastic £7300 to 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.
In Kenya extreme weather conditions due to climate change mean that rainfall is no longer predictable and communities are struggling to survive without a reliable source of water. Women and children have to walk for as much as six hours every day to fetch water.
A simple earth dam, built with the help of Christian Aid’s partners can completely change lives.
With a dam full of water, communities are free from long, painful journeys. They have time to grow fresh vegetables for their families to eat. And it helps everyone reduce the spread of Covid 19.
Each earth dam costs approximately £1400 to construct. Thanks to your generosity, it will be possible for Christian Aid to offer 5 communities a brighter future with a reliable source of water.
Together, we can help stop this climate crisis.
