Give The Gift That Keeps On Giving

(from www.premierchristianradio.com)


Dear Friend,





Tearfund has just launched a new appeal that we’re really excited about. Give before 17 May and all donations to our Matched Giving Appeal will be doubled by the UK government, up to £2 million.





What’s even better is that this match funding will support an amazing new project that


I’d love to tell you about.






TELL ME MORE <https://www.tearfund.org/admin/inpoints/uk_aid_match_2019/esend_prem?utm_medium=email&utm_source=premier&utm_campaign=ukaidmatch_2019_feb_may&utm_content=esend_1&utm_term=premier>





All over the world, millions of people’s lives are being blighted by waste. With no waste collection in place, rubbish is left to lie around in communities. Plastic, glass, sharp metals and rotting food... all in places where people live and children play.





The piles of rubbish attract rats and mosquitoes, which carry disease, while attempts to get rid of it by burning creates toxic fumes. When dumped in local watercourses, plastics and other solid waste ends up causing floods and polluting the oceans.





It’s a bleak picture. However, there’s a great solution we’re helping to launch.





Our partners are setting up recycling hubs in some of Pakistan’s poorest slum communities. These hubs will create cleaner environments, improve people’s health and provide job opportunities for local people.





Over the next three months, you’ll hear all about this exciting initiative on Premier Christian Radio do listen out, it’s inspirational stuff.





I do hope you’ll be moved to make a gift <https://www.tearfund.org/admin/inpoints/uk_aid_match_2019/esend_prem?utm_medium=email&utm_source=premier&utm_campaign=ukaidmatch_2019_feb_may&utm_content=esend_1&utm_term=premier> to help those living in poverty around the world. Please don’t miss out the match funding ends on 17 May (or before if the £2 million target is reached).





And do pray with us, that we will be able to claim the full £2 million in match funding on offer from the government, so that we can make the greatest possible difference.




With every blessing,








Nigel Harris


CEO, Tearfund
