Your Neighbour Is Thirsty

Jesus taught us to love our neighbour. When we respond to those in need, we are showing the love of God to our neighbours.

‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Matthew 25:40

Right now, our neighbours in northern Ethiopia need your help. Droughts are becoming longer and more intense as climate change takes its toll. As riverbeds are dry, many are forced to walk long distances to get enough water to provide for their families and, all too often, they are having to go to bed thirsty.

Everyday life is a real struggle for people, like Orbisa, whose story we tell in our new film.

Download the film today – your church’s offering could provide life-saving water for those who need it most. To order posters, regular giving cards and donation envelopes, please email or call 0141 332 3621.
