Christian Aid

 

Christian Aid 2019

Christian Aid works with some of the world’s most vulnerable communities in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean as well as responding to emergencies and natural disasters all over the world.

They carry out ground-breaking work in key area, such as gender, health and resilience, to support people in poor communities to improve their lives.

Christian Aid has programmes operating in 37 countries, working with 475 local, national and international partners.

Christian Aid week 2019 runs from 12th-19th May – with the focus on supporting mothers in Sierra Leone who lack basic maternity care and inadequate health care due to escalating government debts following the Ebola crisis.

We did not have a local Door-to-door collection this year for Christian Aid due to a lack of collectors.

However, money raised at the ‘Soup & Sandwich’ lunch on 19th May, donations given during Christian Aid Week and sponsor money from the Bridge Walk meant that Haggs Church could send a cheque for £900 to Christian Aid this summer. This will be put to good use to support the work they undertake with some of the most vulnerable communities in the world.

Unfortunately the Kelpies Canter walk was cancelled on 31st August; due to bad weather and flooding at the Helix Park. However, some Christian Aid supporters from Haggs have walked independently and many donations have still been collected.

Thank you everyone for your continued generosity
