Give The Gift Of Hope This Christmas

 

For great is your love, higher than the heavens;

your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

Psalm 108:4

 

Dear Friend,

 

Will you restore hope where it’s been swept away?

 

Christmas is a time to remember the depth of God’s love for all of us deeper than the deepest floodwaters; deeper than we can comprehend. And this Christmas, we’re asking you to give the gift of hope to those in need.

 

Nilu’s family had no warning of the storm about to hit their small hut, as they slept.

 

The water flooded in, rising higher and higher. Nilu and her husband, Kor, panicked when they woke up and saw the danger they were in. They desperately scrambled to lift their two boys up to safety. There they stayed, trapped for two days.

 

When the floods receded from their home village in Bangladesh, the family was alive, but they had lost everything their home, their possessions and their crops. The pain they must have felt is hard to contemplate.

 

Through our local partner, LAMB, Tearfund supported Nilu’s family with food, which Nilu says saved their lives. In total, LAMB have provided immediate aid to 10,000 people and set up 14 life-saving medical camps.

 

There’s so much more we want to do for communities like Nilu’s whatever they’re facing. And in the months to come, skills training could open up a whole new future for them.

 

 

£60

 

could provide 20 families with portable stoves, enabling them to cook food, which would help protect them from hunger.

This Christmas is a wonderful opportunity to support families like Nilu’s around the world and show them they are not forgotten. Your gift to our Christmas Appeal could make a lasting difference and help someone like Nilu change their life for good. You can be assured it will be used wherever the need is greatest.

 

Please also remember to pray for the many thousands of people in Bangladesh, whose homes and livelihoods have been swept away by the floods.

 

Thank you for your support throughout the year and early wishes for a very happy Christmas.
