11 May Christian Aid Week
Reflect: In Kenya people pray for rain. Rose has to walk 8km to collect water with her donkey. She says, ‘Fetching water takes me six hours because I am old and can’t walk very fast. The drought had been severe. We are suffering.’ Rose is living with HIV and struggles to eat well because there isn’t enough water to grow crops. She is the sole carer for her six grandchildren.
Respond: When the time is appropriate, join in calling on the Government to take steps ahead of the COP26 Climate talks to address climate justice
Creator of the seas and sky, in this time of climate crisis, as we pour out our feelings, pour in your Spirit of hope and renew our resolve to work together to stop this climate crisis
