East Africa Famine Appeal update
More than £340,000 has been given in response to the East Africa Famine Appeal, launched at the end of February by All We Can and the World Church Relationships Team of the Methodist Church in Britain.
The call to donate to the urgent appeal to help avert famine in countries on the verge of disaster has been met with a generous wave of giving from churches and individuals across the world.
All We Can Chief Executive, Maurice Adams said, "The response so far to the East Africa Famine Appeal has been remarkable and humbling. Such an extraordinary response is required because of the extraordinary calamity we are witnessing".
