10th May – 16th May is Christian Aid Week

Find out more about Christian Aid Week at http://www.christianaid.org.uk/getinvolved/christianaidweek/

Featured on the website are two short film clips about Loko, a woman in Ethiopia whose family’s life and her status in the community were enormously improved by being given a cow, which in turn allowed her to promote women’s rights and argue against child marriage.

In Ethiopia, a cow costs just £150 which means that if our Church can raise as much as last year our efforts would allow Christian Aid to purchase almost 11 cows and transform the lives of these 11 families and maybe even the whole village.

Please help Potters Bar URC achieve this target by helping with the street collections or donating if you can.
