Last summer our Seaside Day Trip was in aid of the “Ngwino Turirimbane” Music Therapy project, which Helen Leith is involved in. Helen is part of the St Boniface secular institute based at the German Centre in Exeter Rd. The project involves her and Judith Nockolds making regular visits out there to help children who are disable-ed or orphaned, partly as a result of the awful violence in that area a few years ago.

We have just heard the awful news that following a recent earthquake two centres involved in the project which house the children have been very seriously damaged. The children from one of the centres are currently having to live and sleep in the fields (with no tents/shelter and it is the rainy season). One of the deaf children even had a heart attack during the tremors.

For this reason this Lent’s family fast day, next Friday, is in aid of efforts to help them. Just
(i) take a blank white envelope from the porch
(ii) next Friday fast from food in prayerful solidarity with the suffering children
(iii) place any monies saved (& any donation), in the envelope
(iv) next Sunday place the envelope in the main collection.

Please see the display at the back of the Church.

Also Helen will be holding a Meditative Music Evening at St. Agnes’s, Cricklewood, on Thursday, 6th March at 7.30 pm (full details inside) with any donations raised from it being sent to these dear people in Rwanda. Thank you.
