Methodist Church: March 2017

On 20 February 2017 it was announced that South Sudan had reached tipping point with two counties being declared as officially affected by famine. The Methodist Church in Britain is urging people to respond quickly, generously and collectively to this catastrophic situation by supporting the appeal being managed by All We Can.
