We have raised a total of £615. A huge "Thank you " to everyone who contributed.
This will be split, with £405 going towards the Nyarugenge church hand-washing station and £210 going to the Lyndhurst Deanery Mission Team Rwanda Appeal. The latter will be for Shyogwe Diocese which has been giving vital support to the pastors whose already low incomes have been further diminished due to the Covid restrictions. Congregations are supposed to pay their pastors but this has not been possible because the people are struggling to find food which is scarce and expensive.                        Reg
