Rwanda COVID-19 Appeal: £6000 + raised so far!
In response to the money that has already been released for our partners in Rwanda, Archbishop Mbanda wrote: 'Thank you so much. You are a blessing and you are saving lives.'
This money is given to parish committees for them to distribute to the most needy in their parishes (including pastors). Now that we have topped £6000 we will be releasing further amounts for our partners this week. We thank the Lord for the generosity of our UK partners.
Since our last update, there have been heavy rains in Rwanda causing flooding and landslides. Kenya and Uganda have also been badly affected. According to reports, at least 65 people have died in Rwanda as a result, with hundreds made homeless. We're waiting for news from our partners to see how best we can help.
We are also helping our partners in India. We have made just over £1,000 available for Plenty To Share Ministry, from our India SAP Help Fund. They have been able to buy food and provisions which they have already distributed to the most vulnerable in the villages.

All the money given will go directly out to help our partners in Rwanda (Dioceses of Gasabo and Byumba) and we will post updates here and on our Instagram page.
Here are some of those who have been helped already with provisions of rice, beans and vegetables - pastors and their families, older orphans, the sick and elderly. Click on them to enlarge the image.
