Help vaccinate the world — a message from Rosemary Cooney
We in the UK have been very blessed to be given the opportunity to receive two COVID-19 vaccinations. Many developing countries are unable — for economic or infrastructure reasons — to offer the same to their citizens.
Two initiatives have been launched to alleviate this — we have been told many times that we’re not safe until the whole world has been vaccinated. The first initiative comes from The Church of England, which has helped to develop and is supporting Unicef’s crowd-funding campaign “Give the World a Shot” to secure resources to vaccinate those in developing countries – Vaccinaid.B
The second initiative is from Christian Aid, which we at Greasley regularly support. Due to the pandemic Christian Aid’s income has fallen significantly over the past eighteen months — their annual Christian Aid Week having been just one of the casualties locally. They are now appealing for funding in an appeal called Give Thanks.
For more information and to make a donation, go to http://www.christianaid.org.uk and click on the ‘Donate’ button. Alternatively, contact Janet Hedderly: 0115 938 2762.
By donating to either (or both!) of the above you will, in a very practical way, be giving thanks for our vaccinations.
