Bishop’s Appeal Newsletter September 2020


The Bishops’ Appeal Harvest Newsletter is now available here with stories of how your giving is making a difference in sub–Saharan Africa, the Middle East and South Asia.  In particular, the newsletter highlights support for:

– maize farming cooperatives in Burundi, from the Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross;

– ante–natal care and education in Burkina Faso;

– vulnerable people in Lebanon left at greater risk following the Beirut explosion;

– training and equipment for farmers in Nepal who were formerly bonded labourers;

– people struggling with the Covid–19 pandemic and lockdown in Uganda.

Two resources for Harvest are also promoted:

– a reflection from Bishops’ Appeal (which mentions the Great Green Wall initiative, endorsed by the Archbishops of Armagh in their Christmas broadcast last year); and

– Tearfund Ireland’s all–age Harvest service pack based on their work in Ethiopia, which is partly funded by Bishops’ Appeal.
