Events / Christian Aid Week [12 – 18 May 2024]
« Last post by admin on April 07, 2024, 07:39:57 AM »
Posted on behalf of Marple Area Christian Aid Supporters

Christian Aid Week 2024 – 12-18 May

Seven days, so many ways to make a difference.

Every Christian Aid (CA) Week, people across Britain and Ireland raise funds, act and pray for their global neighbours in a celebration of hope for a fairer world.

This year’s appeal is focussing on the CA’s work in Burundi, one of the most densely populated and poorest countries in Africa. Heavily reliant on agriculture, it’s also one of the least prepared to combat the effects of climate change, including droughts, floods and landslides. The global cost of living crisis has intensified the challenges: more than 70 per cent of the population live in poverty and more than half of children are chronically malnourished.

CA has been working in Burundi since 1995 when it first offered humanitarian assistance to people surviving the civil conflict. Now, alongside local partners, CA helps establish community-led groups, which means people can save and borrow money, make small businesses possible, offer reliable and diverse incomes so families can eat regularly, get medicine when they need it, and build safer homes.

Thirty-five-year-old Aline Nibogora is the chairperson of one such group which supports some 25 families in a remote village, in Makamba Province. Aline escaped an abusive marriage only to find herself on the streets begging for a place to stay.

Her life changed when she went to a three-day, CA-funded community workshop. With a small start-up loan, Aline began trading avocados and peanuts locally. She’s now a grocery wholesaler and living on her own plot of land where she’s building a home for her family. In the next five years she hopes to expand, so one day she can buy a mill. This will provide a source of income without the need to transport heavy goods over long distances.

“I don't want my children to have a painful life like mine, remembering it makes me weep. I could never have dreamed I would one day have a brick house and be a successful businesswoman, able to feed and clothe my children. This is a plan and I will do it; I am a woman who is an achiever.”

What could your donations buy?
  • £5 could buy a savings book for a member of a group, setting them up to start their own small business and become finically independent.
  • £30 would help a family buy two Jerrycans to collect water from the river to carry back to their farm, maintaining food production for the family.
  • £50 would mean a vulnerable family can purchase a tank to store water for a few days rather than travelling to the communal water point, allowing instant access to water for washing, cleaning and cooking.
  • £100 could help a woman set up her own small business; including money to purchase her first few items to sell. This means she could supply local grocery shops or restaurants with vegetables, set up a roadside shop, or buy maize to sell in bigger markets.
  • £100 could also help buy a family a bicycle meaning easier transport to school, quicker access to medical treatment in emergencies or support carrying produce from farm to market.
Please help families like Alines by donating what you are able.
Attend the Plant and Cake Sale  Saturday May 11th  10am – 12.30 at Marple Methodist Church.

Look out for CA envelopes during CA week.

Please donate using this link.

Many thanks, Marple Area Christian Aid Supporters.

Beyond the frame at Mura Ma Art Space: 28 March – 20 April 2024

Visitors to the gallery are invited to witness the artists’ work in progress and meditate on the production of artwork under the unique conditions.

Open Thurs - Sat, 11am - 4.30pm.

Artists’ Talk: 18 April 7 - 9pm.

Exhibition Finale; 18 - 20 April.

Closing party 20 April 11am - 4pm.
