Moderator’s East Africa Appeal

The Moderator, Rt. Rev. Dr. Frank Sellar, launched a church-wide special appeal to support the international relief effort in East Africa, following the worst drought to hit the region in over half a century. Parts of South Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia have suffered two seasons of prolonged dry spells and crop failures leaving a shocking 16 million people at risk of food shortages. The Church has released an initial £60,000 to be distributed to PCI’s partners, Christian Aid, Tearfund and the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan’s Relief and Development Agency (PRDA). All are already engaged in longer term sustainable development work in the affected regions, and all are now well-placed to direct additional efforts to the unfolding crisis. Despite this challenging situation, these agencies and the PRDA will ensure that contributions are used wisely in the provision of immediate relief of those struggling the most in East Africa

There will be a collection for this appeal today and next Sunday.  Please place your donation on the offering plate. Thank You
