Construction of a simple home in Kiryandongo. Our Shalom Missional Community group at St Helens Parish Church has raised and sent some funds to help complete the 2-room structure. This will give two of our AREP-sponsored students enough space to have somewhere to sleep.
Adjumani to Palabek
An excellent piece on the BBC today on the resilience, initiative, and leadership shown by many refugees, especially women. The refugee camp mentioned, Adjumani, is an established one, it is 75 miles from the brand new camps at Palabek. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-39998759
Children at Palabek Ogili Camp
Quick update following the Comedy Night on Saturday 10th June 2017.
After paying the comedian we’ve raised £536.40 for the 56 refugees at Palabek camp.
Massive thanks to Phil Beswick for doing a really great warm up, to Mark Palmer for such a brilliant main show and to everyone who supported on the night or sent donations. If anyone would still like to give, please use our donate page at http://arep4change.org/donate
We aim to send the money to Uganda in a few days time.
