Anglesey Group of Parishes Benefice of Five Churches near Cambridge

Mara Link

Our benefice of five churches has a link with the large parish of Karukekere in the diocese of Mara in north Tanzania - an area near the Kenyan border, between Lake Victoria and the Serengeti game reserve.

So far this year the benefice has sent £3,093.10 to Mara to support the work of the Safe House for girls at risk of FGM with some gift aid still to be added to that total. The need is particularly acute this year because of the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Thank you so much to everyone who has been giving to support Melina and the young women at the safe house.

 

A message of thanks from Bishop George:


I hope this finds you and your loved ones well.  I just wanted to chip in to say thank you so much for your continued love, care and support to God's work in Mara diocese.  We do thank God for having given you a big heart for our Ministry in Mara.  Please count on our prayers.

 May your day be filled with blessings of love, peace and joy.

+George Mara.
