Christian Aid Week 2019

Christian Aid Week 2019
Christian Aid Week is from 12th – 18th May, and this morning on Abingdon Market Place there was a Christian Aid stall.

They were selling plants, bric-a-brac and books, and had a petition. I believe Christian Aid is one of the last charities to continue – the once common – door to door charity collections. It is a brave thing to do and is for a good cause.

This year’s appeal is to save the life of mums. Christian Aid are looking to build better health centres in Sierra Leone, where mums can deliver their babies safely. The petition asked our Chancellor to push the IMF to drop Sierra Leone’s debt. The country lacks funds for proper health clinics, health training and enough ambulances. This makes it the most dangerous place in the world to become a mum.
