Last week we launched our Christmas appeal, and as you may be aware, we have partnered with BIS (www.bis-group.co.uk) in South Wales to enable us to meet more needs. Every donation that you give towards the Christmas appeal will be matched by BIS up to a total of £1,000. That means that if we raise £1,000, BIS will match that with a further £1,000 and we will have an amazing £2,000 to make a real difference this Christmas!
Who will your donations help?
Meet Edward Kabega and his family. Edward and Juliana have 8 children, and were unable to send them to school because of the fees – even though they attend a government school, they still have to pay for food and exams. Mid 2016 we were able to admit 7 of their children onto the Community Education Support Programme, and they have been at school ever since. As you can imagine, feeding this many children at Christmas is tough.
Edward says “I really need support because I have many children and food is very expensive, especially during Christmas season“
Brian (social worker) says “All his family members will be very happy upon receiving a Christmas package“
