Christian Aid Online Gathering

Tuesday December 8 2020

Christian Aid Scotland’s flagship supporter event ‘The Gathering’ will take place online next year, with an opportunity to hear from the team in Ethiopia.  The theme is ‘resilience’ and Netsanet Feleke and Solomon Woldetsadik will speak about the impact of climate change, locusts and conflict on vulnerable communities.

There will also be the opportunity to hear about Christian Aid Week 2021 and new ways to celebrate and fundraise.  Supporters who found creative ways to campaign and fundraise last year, despite lockdown, will share some of their success stories and top tips.

Val Brown, Community Relations and Fundraising Manager, said: “Though we can’t meet in person this is a great opportunity to hear directly from our staff in Ethiopia about the challenges they face, as climate change makes the weather warmer and more unpredictable. Like us they’ve had to deal with the coronavirus pandemic but they’ve also had to deal with plagues of locusts which have destroyed crops.  The Gathering is about learning and inspiring action and we hope the two-hour session will be interactive and engaging.”

The Gathering runs from 10am – 12 noon on the February 16. To register and receive the Zoom joining instructions, email
