Insamling till Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone drabbades av en naturkatastrof för en dryg vecka sedan. Oerhört kraftiga regn har orsakat översvämningar och jordskred kring huvudstaden Freetown. Uppgifter ger för handen att över 400 människor har omkommit och fortfarande är det många människor som saknas och kanske ligger begravda i lermassor.
Den kyrkorörelse vi samarbetar med har en församling i den mest drabbade staden som heter Regent. Församlingen har redan upprättat en matbespisning för att hjälpa de som drabbats. Man gör sitt yttersta med sina knappa resurser. Nu behöver vi bistå dem med medel så att de kan köpa in mer mat men även kunna ge mer långsiktig hjälp till människor som förlorat sina hus och hem.

På söndagens gudstjänst kommer vi ha en insamling för detta ändamål men du kan också ge genom att swisha din gåva eller använda församlingens bankgiro. Det är då viktigt att du märker gåvan med ”Sierra Leone”.
