Christian Aid Tea Party
The following is an extract from the letter I have received back from Christian Aid in response to our donation from our tea party:
Many thanks for your kind donation of £68.50 (plus gift aids) towards the work of Christian Aid. Your gift will help support our work in more than 50 of the world's poorest countries. It was very kind of you to organise a Tea Time event. One project your money will support is in Sri Lanka where Chitrani Namanathan is the leader of a women's group at the Kobbsnills (tea) Estate. Since Christian Aid's partner the Institute for Social Development has been working with the women there, many have become literate and more aware of their rights.
"Most importantly, I now have the courage to confront management and negotiate better conditions".
Once again thank you so much for your continued support of our work with and for the poorest communities on earth. With your continued help, we can make a difference.
Thank you to all who supported this event.
