Christian Aid Event – The Gathering took place on Tuesday 16th February. It was a live event on zoom. Nearly three hundred people from all over Scotland were present on line. It was in two parts. The first part had a speaker from Ethiopia who outlined some of the challenging farming problems there were. From locusts to lack of water there is a lot to overcome. However with the assistance from emergency funding, a specific area has managed to become much more productive and produce food
security for households. There is still a lot to overcome though.
The second part of the meeting was devoted to fund raising for Christian Aid. Churches told how
they had fundraised pre Covid and also after Covid. It was interesting to hear of some new ideas
so watch out for information in the next few months of how you will be able to continue to support
Christian Aid projects.
