It's almost time for the SCIAF Wee Box to make its annual appearance in our local parishes and this year is going to be a bumper year for the charity, as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.
This year the UK Government will double all proceeds to SCIAF, ensuring the charity will be able to help even more people affected by poverty. It is a gesture which should not be understated and it is an opportunity which should not be missed!
Please remember to pick up your SCIAF Wee Box this year and keep it in your home. You may even want to consider taking one to your workplace to raise money. It's all going to a good cause and it's all going to be doubled! And remember, if you can't get to a local Catholic parish, you can simply click the link at the bottom of this article to donate online.
SCIAF is the official aid and international development charity of the Catholic Church in Scotland. In 2012 it spent an incredible £2.9 million on development programmes in countries across Africa, Latin America and Asia. It provides clean water to millions of people and provides care for families living with AIDS and HIV.
