SPECIAL APPEALS:

Support the EFAC (Evangelical Fellowship of the Anglican Communion) Appeal for assistance to Anglicans deeply affected by the lockdown around the world.

Bishop Gilbert of Madagascar is asking for £5000 to provide 150 packages of rice, oil and sugar, hygiene materials and medicines to support people without day-to-day income and the women at the Cathedral.

In Amritsar, in north-west India, which Archbishop Welby visited in September 2019, Bishop Samantaroy constituted a COVID-19 Relief Operation after lockdown was imposed with four hour’s notice on March 24. While the Government assured supply of food to everyone, many received nothing.  The diocesan team distributed dry food material to 1200 families needing aid.

Bishop Patrick Gidudu of the Diocese of Mbale in Eastern Uganda says the Diocese is asking for£3500 to provide 5kg of maize to 1610 households including 450 Lay readers, 160 active and retired priests, and 300 elderly.

Anglican Mainstream is helping EFAC with collection, administration (including Gift Aid) and distribution of funds. Please donate using one of the methods above, and mark your donation ‘EFAC Appeal’.

ANGLICAN MAINSTREAM KENYA APPEAL: YOUTH FOR LIFE

Youth for Life is a community organisation based in Athi River, near Nairobi. Kenya. It works with disadvantaged young people in a holistic way, assisting with education, health, relief of poverty, economic empowerment and care for the local environment.

YfL has a clear Christian foundation. One of the aims of the ministry is to enable young people to come to faith in Jesus, to grow in that faith, and to make a positive difference for the gospel in the community.

Raphael Gakinya, the Director of the YfL Centre (above left), is grateful for regular support the Centre is receiving, but recognises that much more needs to be done. He is asking for financial support to develop three new projects which have started:

1.   A Christian library, where young people can have access to Christian literature, videos and DVD’s. There is a particular need for bibles, which can be bought locally much cheaper than shipping them from the UK.

2.   The ‘Life Choices’ programme, particularly aimed at teenage boys who need rehabilitation after getting involved in drugs, gangsterism and prostitution. As part of the programme, they receive spiritual and psychological counselling, food and basic accommodation, access to medical care, and training for employment.

3.   Another programme works with teenage girls and young women, helping them to delay sexual debut, discouraging abortion if they do get pregnant, and counselling those who are victims of abuse and rape.

Please donate by using one of the methods detailed above, and marking your donation ‘KENYA APPEAL’. For more details click here: Anglican Mainstream KENYA APPEAL
