Disasters Emergency Committee
In the news this week there have been many pieces about the plight of thousands of refugees in East Africa and so an appeal was launched by the Disasters Emergency Commitee to raise funds for charities working in this area. In the mean time, I was planning doing a car boot sale to tidy out our loft a bit & recycle unwanted items
...Putting these two thoughts together, we managed to raise £98 at a car boot sale today (- despite torrential rain!) & so are now going to help the poor people in Africa with a £100 donation. - As you can imagine we are quite pleased with that!
Below is the article on the DEC page, along with a link should you wish more information.
East Africa Crisis Appeal
Families saving waterOver 10 million people are at risk in East Africa due to conflict and some areas being affected by the worst drought in 60 years. The DEC East Africa Crisis Appeal will support the work of our members in affected areas of Kenya, Ethiopia, Somalia and South Sudan. Your donations can help provide life saving aid such as food, water, care for malnourished children and medical treatment.
