Advocate Slot - Christian Aid and Christian Aid Week

Each year we celebrate CHRISTIAN AID WEEK (May 15th - 21st) when we focus on a specific part of our work and hold various events encouraging people to donate to the charity.
This year we will be focussing on climate justice and how the effects of the pandemic and the conflict in the Ukraine have driven up food prices around the globe. Vulnerable families will be pushed even deeper into hunger. Turn hunger into hope!
Prayer Pointers:
1) Please pray for all those who are suffering from the effects of Climate Change and especially for hungry families.
2) Please pray for the people of Ukraine and the Christian Aid response as they work with two partner organisations in the ACT Alliance to give help to Ukraine refugees fleeing deadly violence.
3) Please pray for all those who will be organising or participating in events to raise money this Christian Aid Week . Please pray that people’s hearts will be moved to give generously.
HOPE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. HOPE LIVES IN YOU.

Emergency Ukraine Appeal from the Diocese in Europe and USPG

The charity USPG and the Church of England Diocese in Europe are launching an emergency appeal to get aid to people in desperate need because of the invasion of Ukraine. Funds raised by the appeal will support Christian charities and churches carrying out humanitarian work both in Ukraine and responding to the arrival of refugees in neighbouring countries. Their partners on the ground are providing food, medicine, shelter, care for children and people internally displaced in Ukraine. For refugees they are supplying care at the border and beyond, including attention to those from Africa and Asia, as well as Ukrainians who are fleeing the war. The appeal is for urgent help now but the work will go on for many months. Click below for details which includes how to donate - by clicking on 'an emergency appeal' in red in first line of information.
