SCIAF Wee boxes are available for collection at the back of the Church. Please take one and fill it with your loose change this Lent.

This year the WEE BOX appeal tells the story of SCIAF’s work helping poor families affected by illegal fishing in one of the poorest provinces in Cambodia, Stung Treng. The appeal has already received a huge boost with news that the UK government has committed to doubling – pound-for-pound – all donations received before 8th May through the Aid Match scheme. The money given by the UK government will help 20,000 Cambodians affected by poverty, illegal fishing and land-grabbing in 50 Cambodian villages. This includes providing seeds, farm tools and safe drinking water to the most vulnerable members of the community.

Each year people across Scotland give up a favourite treat such as coffee, chocolate, wine or crisps, put the money they save into a SCIAF WEE BOX, and then donate it at Easter to help the charity’s life-changing work overseas. Please continue to help SCIAF in their work.
