If you are struggling what to buy that special person who has everything, why not give them an Extraordinary Gift from All We Can? All We Can is the operating name of the Methodist Relief and Development Fund. It is pioneering international development, relief and advocacy and believes in the power of partnership. Inspired by Christian principles it focuses on those in greatest need. It helps people to find solutions to poverty and become all that they can. The partnerships improve quality of life and create positive, long-term change in some of the world's poorest communities.
For each gift you will receive a card and an explanation of how the gift will help someone become all they can. There is plenty of space in the card for you to write your own message. Gifts range from £10, right up to £240. £10 will buy a sustainable income from bee keeping in Ethiopia. £40 will enable 285 households to build a fuel efficient stove in Berundi. £113 could pay for grants for three women in Tanzania to set up their own business. £230 could pay for a water pump, the key part of a shallow well in Uganda. These gifts and more can be seen and ordered from the All We Can website by clicking here.
