Extreme Hunger Appeal Service and Lunch with special guest speaker Jane Harding, Sunday November 12 10 am to 1 pm. Plura Hills United Church is located at 2090 Pacific Way, Kamloops.
The United Church of Canada has launched an Extreme Hunger Appeal as the humanitarian crisis in Kenya, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, and Yemen reaches grave levels. Starvation and extreme hunger are rapidly reaching a scale the world has not seen before. Small-scale farmers supply the majority of food in Africa. But climate change has created a devastating and prolonged drought, resulting in both water and food shortages. Farmers are unable to grow crops and their livestock have died. Ongoing conflict is also contributing to the crisis as many families are forced to flee their homes, farms, and livelihoods (http://www.united-church.ca/hunger-appeal).
Jane Harding is the Financial Development Officer for BC Conference and has a passion for stewardship. After participating in the Mission & Service Global Pilgrimage to Kenya, Jane has kindled her passion for the Extreme Hunger Appeal. She will talk about her experience on the pilgrimage and share ideas on how we can help and give from home.
