Christian Aid Week Appeal 10 - 16 May 2021

Climate chaos is one of the greatest injustices we face. Together we STOP this climate crisis. Droughts are now more frequent and more intense due to the climate crisis. Rose and her family, and millions of people in Kenya, are struggling to get enough food and water. Your gift could help a community build an earth dam, so when the rains do come, they will have the water they need to live. People like Rose need every last drop to survive the drought. Together we STOP this climate crisis. Every envelope. Every gift. Every challenge can change lives. https://www.justgiving.com/team/ClarkstonChristianAid...
