Christian Aid Week 2021


Please help Christian Aid to continue its work in 29 of the poorest countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America and the Caribbean.

You can donate to Wheathampstead Churches Together’s Christian Aid Week appeal online through our Christian Aid Just Giving page by clicking here. Or if you prefer you can pick up a traditional red envelope from the back of St Helen’s Church and return it to church at any of May’s Sunday services, to the church office or contact Simon Best (by email here or on 07786 704353) to arrange collection.

 

This year’s appeal focuses on climate justice and especially Christian Aid’s work to provide reliable water supplies to rural villages in Kenya suffering the effects of climate change.
