This year, Christian Aid Week focuses on the story of remarkable change taking place in a community in rural Sierra Leone. Sierra Leone
is one of the hungriest countries in the world. But, helped by Christian Aid, partner the Methodist Church of Sierra Leone (MCSL), some people there have found the tools to move beyond hunger and speak out for the changes they want to see.
Every May thousands of amazing volunteers go into their community to collect door to door. In 2011 door-to-door collections raised more than two-thirds of Christian Aid week’s fantastic £12.5m total. This money has helped to transform lives across the world, empowering poor communities to help themselves out of poverty. Thank you to those collectors within our church who made this happen and to those of you who donate so generously.
As the saying goes, many hands make light work. If you would like to volunteer to collect for Christian Aid it would be very much appreciated, not least by myself, but also by the people who benefit from the phenomenal work of Christian aid.
