As a church we have the joy and privilege of sponsoring children through Compassion UK in one of Africa’s least developed countries, Togo. It’s one of our Welcome Works.
Over 140 Togolese children have been sponsored by people from Welcome Church; we are helping to change lives as children and families are lifted out of poverty. Compassion only work with the poorest of the poor, so we are making a real difference. Please don’t forget to write to your sponsored child and tell them you love them and Jesus does too.
In June last year we also gave a tithe (10%) from our final Building Fund Gift Day to help support a Compassion Child Survival Programme in Togo. The amount we gave away came to around £40,000, which was then doubled by the UK government because we collected it under a special ‘matched funding’ initiative.
We have now received a really helpful update on what is happening with the Child Survival Programmes in Togo.
You can download the update below. It takes about ten minutes to read it through, and I would warmly encourage you to give it the time.
Look at the pictures of the mums and see how young they are. Read their stories and see the difference that’s being made. Take the time educate yourself on what we have all helped to fund.
Jesus knows them all by name and it’s our privilege to be part of this
