We have commitments to fund the care of a number of children through World Vision. Each year the generosity of our congregations exceeds the commitment to this care, and in 2017 we were able to send a further donation of £238. Our treasurer, Gary has received the following message of thanks from World Vision –
We have now allocated your kind donation to our Myanmar refugee appeal.
More than 300,000 children have already fled unimaginable violence in Rakhine state, Myanmar. Many have lost parents and are crossing the border into Bangladesh scared, hungry and alone.
These refugees, most of whom identify as Rohingya, are living in makeshift camps with little access to food, clean water or medical care. They are facing the threat of malnutrition and disease.
Your donation will help World Vision, working on the ground in Bangladesh, to provide emergency food, water and sanitation, and protection to refugee families.
We are so grateful for your kindness.? You are helping to bring hope to children in some of the world’s hardest places.
If you have any further questions, Please don’t hesitate to email us.? Alternatively, you can call our Supporter Helpline on 01908 84 10 10 or 0800 085 81 88 and one of the team will be happy to assist you. Phone lines are open Monday to Friday.
With kind regards,
