Helping Vanuatu

from w
In the Methodist Church facebook page is an article about the children donating to the children of Vanuatu. What an excellent idea at this time.
Members of the Methodist Church in Fiji will collect a special donation on Sunday 29th March to go towards relief efforts for the people of Vanuatu, Tuvalu and Kiribati recovering from the onslaught of Severe Tropical Cyclone Pam.
Being the Palm Sunday (Children’s Sunday), it is only proper that children and parents in Fiji dedicate their donation to the more than 30,000 children of Vanuatu as well as children of Tuvalu and Kiribati who are facing the aftermath of Cyclone Pam.

As children in Fiji participate in church services and enjoy good meals next Sunday, their friends in Vanuatu, Tuvalu and Kiribati are facing critical food and water shortage, no home to live and are faced daily by the threat of serious sickness. In Vanuatu, some children have died and many have lost their parents.
Divisional Superintendents, Ministers, Deaconesses and local pastors are requested to announce this collection this Sunday 22nd March and that they come prepared on the 29th.
Please share this message with your churches, ministers, deaconesses and vakatawas.... Vinaka!
