As in previous years the Fellside Team will be supporting the Bishop Harvest Appeal. This year the two projects it is raising money for are:
Friends of Mulnaje Orphans (FOMO) works in the Mulanje district of Malawi which looks after thousands of children in 14 centres across 90 villages in the district.
The centres provide healthcare, activities and food (1.2 million meals last year). FOMO also helped in the aftermath of Cyclone Idai providing emergency food, blankets and clothing, and continues to work with communities as they rebuild.
Christian Aid’s ‘Breaking the Barriers’ in Honduras is working to help some of the poorest communities cope with the impact of climate change, of drought and unpredictable seasons. It works predominantly with women through micro-finance to develop community led energy projects such as solar driers for maze, coffee and cacao. These allow communities to produce and sell better quality product to help them survive in an increasingly harsh climate.
There will be leaflets in our churches giving more details and explaining how to support the Bishop’s Harvest Appeal.
