My story

[p]I am raising funds to help RUSH Kenya (Reaching the Unreached through Self Help) run their Christmas celebrations in Kenya this year. I have supported RUSH Kenya for a number of years and know Andrew and Lucy Amukowa well (founders of RUSH Kenya). I'm glad to be helping International Needs support their vital work this Christmas.[/p][p]Can you help us raise £500? I am hoping members from St John's might want to donate to this work, and funds raised at our Christmas Concert on 19th December at St John's Stoneleigh.[/p][p]This will help RUSH Women, a group of vulnerable women in Western Kenya, so that they too can come together for a Christmas celebration meal and be provided with food bags with basic items to feed them during the Christmas season. All money raised will go towards the £2,000 needed to provide 800 people with a nutritious meal and give 400 food bags to families in need (photos from 2018 shown below).[/p][p]As you plan this Christmas, for your meals, family gatherings and gifts, could you give a donation for vulnerable families in Kenya?
