Virtual Gathering 2021 – 16 February
We might not be able to gather in person quite yet, but we’ve discovered how much we can do online! Join us on zoom on 16 February from 10am to noon to hear about some of our amazing partner work at the virtual Gathering.
We’re delighted to welcome staff from Christian Aid Ethiopia. Netsanet Feleke and Solomon Woldetsadik will speak to us about the impact of climate change, locusts and conflict on vulnerable communities.
We’re also excited to find out about new ways of celebrating Christian Aid Week. We’ll hear from supporters who tried new ways of fundraising in 2020. We’ll look forward to COP and think about how we can all be involved in the fight against climate change. And you’ll meet some of the new faces on the Christian Aid Scotland team.
We hope to run an interactive session with opportunities to ask questions of our staff and other supporters.
Please do save the date and invite others to join us.
