Here are the charities and organisations we donated to in 2014.
The Salvation Army will help anyone who is referred to them by teachers, doctors, social workers and the police. They provide top ups for gas and electricity meters and anything else that families or individuals require. As Christmas approaches they will be planning for Christmas Day when the members own celebrations are put on hold as they provide lunches and a party for the homeless and lonely.
Today the hospital specialises in the rehabilitation of the elderly, intermediate care and supporting terminally ill and palliative patients – 17 bed occupancy. We also have a day care facility for up to 10 clients each day. We have a mini minor injuries unit and a range of out patient activities to include GP minor operations, consultant clinics, specialist nurses and a nurse led dressing clinic which sees in the region of 150 patients a month.
In 2015 Winsford Fire Cadets are travelling to Nepal to build classrooms for a school. As well as being a community-changing opportunity in Nepal, it represents a challenge and life-changing opportunity for the young cadets. You can read more about the project here. You can find details about how to donate here.
Classrooms In The Clouds is a registered organisation working in the Everest region of Nepal in the remote villages of the Solu Khumbu region building classrooms and sponsoring teachers.
We work with our Nepalese partners to support education by:
- Building good quality, new classrooms
- Sponsoring teachers, supporting teacher training and encouraging the employment of female teachers
- Working in partnership with local communities
Tackling Poverty Together. With your support, churches and community groups can help some of England’s poorest and most marginalised people transform their lives for the better.
For over 300 years we have been sharing God’s love through practical action, and seeing lives transformed.
Our goal is to help more and more people ‘take hold of the life that is truly life’ (1 Timothy 6:19).
How we work looks different according to the culture and context of our church partners.
- In Zimbabwe, we initiated a national programme to tackle HIV stigma so more people will come forward to receive counselling and treatment.
- In Myanmar, we are supporting a programme to take healthcare into isolated rural communities.
- In South Africa, we have developed a programme to provide church leaders with practical development skills.
Our programmes have a deep impact because they are run by local churches that are embedded in the communities they serve – communities that have often been overlooked.
The worst-ever outbreak of Ebola is bringing Sierra Leone to its knees, along with neighbouring Liberia and Guinea – and risks spreading rapidly to other parts of West Africa and beyond.
Since it struck in March, there have been nearly 5,000 deaths reported, and the numbers of new victims are growing fast. Millions of people are now at risk.
We can halt its spread. But if we don’t act quickly, this highly contagious killer will spiral out of control.
