For information on what I am trying to do please see this post. I hope you will consider raising money with me during Lent.
The theme for this week is well-being.
Here are the thoughts for the third week:
Monday 11 April
In Ethiopia, Christian Aid partners train teachers in health and sanitation so that this knowledge is passed on to schoolchildren.
Give 10p every time you flush the toilet today.
Tuesday 12 April
Nearly 1 billion people do not have clean water.
Give 10p for every tap in your home.
Wednesday 13 April
Almost half the people in developing countries lack adequate sanitation.
Give 5p for every time you wash your hands today.
Thursday 14 April
20% of the world’s poorest people lives with disabilities and are the most disadvantaged within their own communities.
Give 10p for every packet of medication in your home that you have not had to use this week.
Friday 15 April
It would cost US$11.3bn to bring water and sanitation to everyone in the world. That is one-third of what we spend on alcohol in Britain each year.
Give 10p for every alcoholic drink you’ve had this week
Weekend 16-17 April
There are 21 doctors in Britain for every 10,000 people. In Burkina Faso, there is just one doctor for every 10,000 people.
Give 20p for every pharmacy and doctor’s you can reach within 15 minutes. Give thanks for health professionals all over the world.
In week 5 I raised: £4.10
My total so far is: £23.83
How about you?
