THIS year, Christian Aid’s Christmas Appeal is asking the people of Armagh to support communities in South Sudan, who are facing crippling hunger and poverty. Donations made to Christian Aid’s Christmas appeal between 6 November 2017 and 5 February 2018 will be matched by the UK Government up to £2.7 million.
CEO of Christian Aid Ireland, Rosamond Bennett, recently returned from South Sudan. There she witnessed the hopelessness and hunger faced by millions in the conflict-torn country.
For every pound given to Christian Aid’s Christmas Appeal, the UK Government will also give a pound. That’s double the support for people living in poverty. The UK Government’s match, will fund our work in South Sudan.
