Our Harvest Giving

September 22nd, 2017

The intensifying violence in Northern Rakhine State, Myanmar, has caused over 370,000 internally displaced people and refugees to have crossed the border into Bangladesh. Urgent needs include food, water, sanitation, shelter, medical and trauma care.  Whilst access is restricted, Tearfund’s Bangladesh team is making plans for a response in partnership with a local organisation and is also undertaking peacebuilding work in Myanmar, addressing in a small way some of the causes of violence and conflict.

Catastrophic flooding has devastated huge areas of India, Nepal and Bangladesh, affecting 41 million people.  More than 1,200 people have died, nearly 3/4 million homes have been destroyed or damaged and crops and livestock have been swept away.  The need is enormous and the scale of the destruction is vast. Tearfund partners have been on the ground since the floods began, distributing food, tents, blankets, clothes, sleeping mats, mosquito nets, cooking utensils and safe drinking water.

An offering will be taken for Tearfund at the services at Holy Trinity and St Saviour’s on Sunday 1st October.  If you are unable to attend, but would like to give, please donate via our BT Donate Page.
