Cyclone Idai Appeal

There will be a retiring collection this morningon behalf of Christian Aid for victims of Cyclone Idai.

Envelopes may be found at the doors of the Church.

More than 2 million people have been affected by Cyclone Idai in Malawi, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. An estimated 80,000 people have been displaced and at least 240 people have been killed. The death toll is rising fast, with over 1,000 predicted lost.

Christian Aid is already on the ground in Malawi and Zimbabwe. Homes, schools and health facilities have been demolished, roads have been blocked, and water and sanitation infrastructures have been destroyed, heightening the risk of water-borne diseases. Christian Aid has joined the rest of the DEC (Disaster Emergency Committee) to raise urgent funds.

If you are a taxpayer, then your donation can be given under Gift Aid. To do this, please complete your details on the envelope which may be found at doors of the Church, tear off the flap, put it in the envelope.

If you do not pay tax, simply place your donation in the plate.

Envelopes received after today will be forwarded to Christian Aid.

Please make cheques payable to St Ninian’s Churchas one total payment will be sent to Christian Aid.

Thank you- Alec Millar: Christian Aid Coordinator
