Christian Aid –  An Incredible Journey – YOU can help.
This Christmas, Rogers, a modern-day wise man, will be travelling far from home to deliver hope and joy in rural Kenya. In Kenya’s Nyanza Province,malaria and HIV rates are extremely high, but many sick people simply cannot access the life-saving treatment they require. Rogers, a volunteer community health worker, travels to these remote communities on a red motorbike to bring mosquito nets, healthcare and medicines to those most in need.
Rogers’ selfless compassion has saved many lives and brought joy and hope to people like Patricia – a single mother and teacher living with HIV in the remote village of Usenge. Follow the journey with Rogers in an interactive map at www.christianaid.org.uk  We at Markinch Parish Church can help Rogers
deliver the care that is needed by purchasing mosquito nets, home care kit, training another volunteer or even purchasing a motorbike for Rogers. Please use the envelopes included to donate and place them in the ‘wishing well’ in the vestibule.  For more information please contact Tracy Thomson.
