The Revd Mark Woodrow was today invited to speak with the Women’s Fellowship Group at Polstead Church, where he told them of his faith journey and his time in India and in Malawi.
The Fellowship Group like to make donations to support different organisations and live out their faith by helping to improve the lives of disadvantaged people in other parts of the world.
Today they chose a project that The Revd Mark has supported for a number of years (and to which the 5 churches in the benefice have also been supporting) and they generously made a donation of £55 to Tear Fund’s ‘Toilet Twinning‘ campaign.
The money will be used to “provide clean water, basic sanitation, and hygiene education. This vital combination works together to prevent the spread of disease. Children are healthier, and able to go to school; parents are well enough to work their land and grow enough food to feed their family. With better health, and more ability to earn a living, men and women discover the potential that lies within them to bring transformation.
Family by family, community by community, nation by nation, Tearfund are flushing away poverty. ”
