new arrivals
Starting at 10 this morning, for the next five days, there is an opportunity, through the Big Give,  to double any donation you make to the Thai Childrens Trust, a charity which is feeding 3,500 Burmese refugee children in Thailand.

Every year, thousands of Burmese children arrive in the Thai town of Mai Sot. They are refugees, fleeing violence and persecution. Back home their villages are raided, their crops destroyed, livestock killed, women and girls raped and the boys are captured sand used as forced labour.

Once they reach the safety of Mai Sot, they face another crisis. The camps are desperately overcrowded and there is a great shortage of food. An estimated 50% of the children are classified as severely malnourished.  The Thai Children's Trust has pledged to feed 3,500 children. Please hep them achieve this goal.

If you give £5, your donation will be doubled to £10. With Gift Aid, that makes £12.82. And that will buy 65 lunches for hungry children. Not bad for a fiver!

For more information, to see a film about their work and to make a donation through the Big Give, see: http://ctt-news.org/67W-BM8T-KOK9T-4FGCW-0/c.aspx
