Things are a little bit different this Christian Aid Week. There aren't any house-to-house collections, Big Brekkies or bucket collections. But there is one unwavering thing – you and your love for your neighbours near and far.
That’s because love never fails. We are living in unprecedented times and coronavirus impacts all of us – but love unites us all.
Over the last few months, you’ve shown love to your neighbours in so many ways. You’ve picked up the phone. You’ve brought them food. You’ve prayed for them. You’ve shown that you’re by their side. And they’re not alone.
And while this Christian Aid Week feels a little strange, we know you will do what you can in these unusual circumstances to reach out to your global neighbours too.
Now is the time
In the face of coronavirus, the poorest and most vulnerable in our world need your help.
Your gifts this Christian Aid Week could help us to continue to support families around the world who are living in poverty, including people who will be affected by the coronavirus.
Families who are living in over-crowded refugee camps. People who have no clean water to wash their hands. People who are living with HIV.
These are grandparents, mums, dads and children – real people. Like you and me. We must respond to limit the impacts of coronavirus and continue to help people living in poverty.
From providing essential soap, water and handwashing training to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, to ensuring we can continue to provide life-saving support for some of the poorest families across the world.
Will you help more of your neighbours today?
As coronavirus spreads across the world, love rises up in response.
Your love protects from storms, from drought, and now from coronavirus. Your love protects our global neighbours, battling the spread of this illness. Your love protects with soap, clean water and medical supplies.
Reach out and protect more of your neighbours this Christian Aid Week.
Because love never fails. Even in the darkest moments, love gives hope.
Your donations will help support people in poverty around the world – more important than ever in light of the coronavirus pandemic. Thank you.
