'Jesus said, "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger and whoever believes in me shall never thirst."' [John 6:35].
This year, we know that children and families, including Christian brothers and sisters in Eastern Europe will struggle as never before; freezing weather and temperatures as low as -20C, large-scale unemployment as a result of COVID-19, increased homelessness, high fuel costs which make heating rooms prohibitive, as well as soaring infection levels that particularly affect the vulnerable and elderly, are all impacting on individual lives.
We urgently need your help. Together we can demonstrate God's love as we reach out to people in practical ways, whether it's by providing a pair of winter boots, a pile of firewood, or warm soup.
With your help Action Winter Rescue '21 hopes to exceed the 190,000 warm meals served last year from our Soup Kitchens to children, families and the elderly. And through this pratical support we can help people encounter God's love and warm hearts and homes this winter.
You can help. A gift of £24 could give 2 elderly people a daily meal at one of our Soup Kitchens for 2 weeks. A gift of £42 could cover the cost of 1 cubic metre of firewood for a family.
