Thousands of families are now living in crowded refugee camps in Yemen, Syria, Bangladesh and many other countries, with little access to medical care, clean water or enough food.
Consequently they are extremely vulnerable to the corona virus which is likely to be more deadly in the camps that it has been here - and there are not enough hospital beds or supplies to treat those who fall ill.
However, simple measures can make a huge difference and the Disasters Emergency Committee, of which Christian Aid is a member, has launched an appeal.
You may like to contribute in an Emergency envelope. This may be left in Church or taken to 16 Franklands. Please gift-aid your donation if possible.
Donations may also be given online at christianaid.org.uk
Thank you very much for any help you are able to give.
