Harvest Appeal 2020 – Education, Health and Food

The Trustees invite you to support our annual Harvest Appeal. They are aware that  ‘charity begins at home’, however, local food banks accept donations all year round, we ask but once a year for assistance helping our brothers and sisters in Africa.   

We wish you all good health and safety in these unusual times.  Across the world humanity has been affected by the microscopic virus Covid-19.  The impact on our lives is manifold yet we in the UK have resources and infrastructure to stave off the worst.  We have received many requests from our ngo’s in Africa to provide them help.  Many people are not allowed to go and work so there is food poverty.  We have responded where we can, but we are in no doubt there will be a more demand for food aid in the Autumn and we pray that we are able to respond with your help.

Also, this year we are collaborating with Training Teachers for Community Schools in Zambia who deliver training for unpaid, untrained teachers in Zambia.  They distribute ‘Buddy Boxes’ to poor community schools. Each boxes cost £25.00 and include either basic stationery for 25 children or a set of materials for teachers.

Please help us by donating:

  • Dried food stuffs and tins [+24 month use by dates,  no glass please]
  • School stationery items, [pencils, rubbers, rulers, sharpeners, solar calculators]
  • £25 donation to ‘Training Teachers for Community Schools in Zambia’      [make your cheque out to Teachers 4 Zambia and send to CART PO Box with your contact details and both will be forwarded to the charity for them to contact you directly.]
  • Help us raise an extra £1500 to buy a 40ft container to leave in Malawi as a Nursery School         These donations should be made payable to CART or done through the online giving portal. thank you.
  • First Aid items, face masks and hand sanitizers.
