Disasters Emergency Committee Appeal
When the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), which represents 14 leading aid agencies, announces an emergency appeal, Trinity's policy is to hold a retiring collection for two Sundays - enabling us to show we care.
While the world's richest nations have struggled amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the virus poses an even deadlier threat to the most vulnerable communities.
Covid-19 is beginning to spread in refugee and internal displacement camps where people who have been forced from their homes after years of war or instability face another - unseen - enemy.
There are 24 million internally displaced people living in fragile states, such as Yemen, Syria, Somalia, Afghanistan and South Sudan, as well as an additional 850,000 Rohingya people living in the world’s biggest refugee camp in Bangladesh.
In a bid to help those families who have lost everything the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) launched a UK-wide fundraising appeal. For more information see the Disasters Emergency Committee website...
Trinity supported this appeal during August.
