Sri Lanka Appeal
Opportunity to directly support the Methodist Church in Sri Lanka as it responds to the crisis gripping the country.
The economic crisis in Sri Lanka is having devastating effects on the daily lives of the people as rising prices and shortages make essential goods, such as food, cooking gas and medicine, harder and harder to obtain.
The Methodist Church in Sri Lanka has launched a Samaritan Journey Project which aims to provide relief for the people who are suffering most seriously. This includes providing severely affected families with relief packages consisting of essential food and other items, giving grants for medical expenses of children who have recurring illness, and giving start-up kits to enable people to grow their own vegetables.
In response, the Methodist Church in Britain has given a Solidarity Grant of £15,000 from the World Mission Fund towards the Samaritan Journey Project. The need, however, goes far beyond the scope of this grant, and so we are inviting donations to the Samaritan Project through the World Mission Fund. This channel for giving will be open until August 15, and the money raised will then be sent as a lump sum to the Samaritan Journey Project.
