Donations for the Refugee Crisis

The images of desperate refugees crossing the Mediterranean in unstable boats, or packed illegally into lorries, or protesting ‘We are human beings too’ in the port of Calais, are a distressing reminder of the shocking refugee crisis that led to the founding of Christian Aid in 1945. Christian Aid is working with churches and other agencies in supporting humanitarian efforts taking place in Europe and the Middle East. Their partners can provide essential humanitarian supplies such as food, fuel for cooking, hygiene and sanitation kits, water containers and cash assistance, as well as psychological support for those who are suffering as a result of the conflict.

Oakham PCC will be discussing how best to respond to the migrant crisis appeal on Monday evening, but in the meantime donations will be gratefully received by the treasurer, which will go to Christian Aid, or you can donate through their website directly at
