Find the hidden Advent stones

Rev Sarah has been busy with her family hiding  a set of nativity stones around the village. If you find one, please bring it to the wooden stable in the church porch and let's hope all the stones make it back in time to celebrate on Christmas Day. There are 14 to find.

Why we need your help

 

This year the lives of people all over the world have changed. This year people fell ill. This year people lost jobs. This year people couldn’t afford food. This year people didn’t have enough clean water. This year in Rajasthan was hard. So this Christmas we’re asking you to spare the luxury of Advent Calendars and Christmas Cards and donate to families who urgently need your support.

 

At Khandel light, we’ve been working extra hard to continue providing clean water for 400 families, to give educational bursaries to over 100 students, to supply women with the sanitary products they need, all while sticking to the COVID-19 guidelines in India. 

 

But we have done more than just that. Those people who were living daily paycheck to paycheck have lost their jobs due to the pandemic and could no longer feed their families. We’ve been able to step in and provide essential food items to families throughout the Rajasthan region. 

 

But this all comes at a cost. Fundraising in 2020 has been near impossible for small charities like ours. And yet these crises continue and we must support communities globally. So with more going out than is currently coming in, Rajasthani families and communities need your help more than ever.

 

So, this Christmas, we’re asking you to donate the cost of a Christmas luxury - maybe your advent calendar or your Christmas Cards - to Khandel Light to keep this vital work going into 2021.

 

And if you’re wondering what to send your family and friends instead we’ve created a downloadable Christmas Card that you can send virtually, or head to our Facebook and Instagram pages for our very own Khandel Light Advent Calendar, or head to our Virgin Money Giving fund-raising page at  https://rb.gy/nrs2w0
