Bishops’ Appeal is acting as a conduit for funds which will be directed to agencies to aid emergency relief efforts following last week’s earthquake in Indonesia.
The earthquake hit the island of Sulawesi, causing a tsunami and around 170 aftershocks. It is the most devastating earthquake to hit Indonesia since 2004.
While directing funds to agencies to aid emergency relief efforts on the ground, Bishops’ Appeal is urging parishes and individuals not to divert Harvest giving as there are many communities awaiting funding for life saving projects across the globe.
Examples are refugee training and trauma support centres in Lebanon and Iraq and access to safe water for schools and communities in Uganda.
All information on giving can be found at the ‘Give’ section of the Bishops’ Appeal website.
