The Methodist Church: August 2017
Following the terrible destruction of homes, properties and lives in Freetown, Sierra Leone, the World Church Relationships Team with the support of All We Can are collecting donations toward relief work in the area.
Any donations raised will be passed directly to the Methodist Church Sierra Leone for their use in helping the affected community through the provision of emergency humanitarian support and going toward equipping the local church ministers to educate the local communities to prevent the spread of cholera and diarrhoea in the aftermath.
