Christian Aid Week May 10th to 16th – What Now?

With the Covid-19 outbreak all the usual Christian Aid Week activities have stopped. We do hope to re-schedule the local Quiz to September and the collections at Farnborough Railway Station.

Christian Aid and its partners already have experience of limiting the spread of infection during the Ebola crisis, and will build on this experience to continue to stand together with communities living in poverty. If infection rates start to develop as they are in Europe, then people in poorer countries will be hit even harder. Many are already living with reduced health resilience because of extreme poverty, or in overcrowded humanitarian camps and in countries which do not have the healthcare infrastructures needed to combat widespread disease. Christian Aid will be working on the ground to help prepare communities to limit the impact of Covid-19.  Please pray for Christian Aid in this vital work. We are praying for all those affected by this virus, both in Britain and overseas and for all those working on the frontline.

The focus this year for Christian Aid was meant to be on Kenya, in particular due to droughts being more frequent and more intense due to the climate crisis. As a result, millions of people in Kenya, are struggling to get enough food and water.

You could help a community build an earth dam, so when the rains do come, they will have the water they need to live. They need every last drop to survive the drought. Each dam is roughly the size of 2 football pitches and costs on average £1,560 to build.
