sweet treats for street child
St Thomas Norwich have launched a fundraising campaign in support of the 1,400 seriously at-risk Ebola orphans identified by Street Child who are in urgent need of support.
The Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone and Liberia cost over 4,000 lives and orphaned over 12,000 children. However, the crisis is not over yet. Child-headed households, grand-parent headed households, households where the numbers of children now run into double-figures. Many of these families cannot afford basics like food and are struggling to survive. Street Child has identified 1,400 seriously at-risk Ebola orphans who desperately need help.
St Thomas Norwich Church have launched a fundraising campaign to help transform the lives of these 1,400 vulnerable Ebola orphans. Together they have created 'Sweet Treats for Street Child' - a collection of beautifully presented recipes submitted by friends and members of St Thomas Norwich.
Cookbooks are priced at a minimum of £12 but - and here’s the unusual twist - St Thomas Norwich are asking you to give as much as you can for a book so that Street Child can help 1,400 seriously at-risk Ebola orphans. This is a unique opportunity to buy a book and transform a life at the same time - what better Christmas gift than to change the life of a vulnerable child, for good?
