As the government's vaccination programme rolls out across the country and protects a growing number of people from the COVID coronavirus that has made life so difficult for the last year, why not take the opportunity to offer thanks to God for your 'jab' in a practical way as well as in prayer?

Christian Aid works with some of the poorest and most vulnerable communities across the world, where there may be little hope of a vaccine rollout. These people already face a lack of water, food, and healthcare. Some are homeless. Some are living with underlying health issues such as HIV.

Christian Aid is already on the ground, helping keep people safe from coronavirus with practical support – but with your gift of thanks can do more.

You can make a donation, and in leaving your message feel free to mention that you're from the Diocese of York.

It’s something positive you can do when life is quite austere anyway!
