These children in Brazil need our help.
2014 Harvest decorations and our appeal in support of children living in poverty in Brazil
For year's harvest appeal, we want to support children trapped in poverty in Brazil. In the shadow of one of the big new football stadiums in Fortaleza, is a slum which is no-go area for the police. A Christian group under Andrew Fanstone, an Anglican priest, would like to take 30 children out into the country side for a 3 day holiday. Some of the children have never been out of the slum area and never experienced a loving environment.
They'd like to refurbish the building shown below to make it a ‘safe house’ for the children to come to, and plant a garden around it. They'd like to have some books inside as a small library for the children to help to combat illiteracy. Education is a powerful tool to break the cycle of poverty and crime.
During our harvest service we had a live Skype link with Andrew Fanstone and learned first hand about the potential impact of our harvest appeal. We can rest assured that every £1 given will go on the project. No costs for admin or bribes!
You can help by making a donation at the back of church. Please ‘Gift Aid’ your donation by adding your full address and signing the envelope.
Thanks to all of the parents or grandparents and friends of a children at All Saints' Primary School who sent gifts of food and drink to their Harvest appeal. Those items were auctioned at the Harvest Supper on Monday 6th October.
In conjunction with Christ Church, Parbold, we are hoping to raise over £3,500. Please continue to give generously.
