Through the month of September, even though we can't do it over a cup of coffee as we would wish to, we are encouraging parishes to take up a collection for Buyé medical cards for our brothers and sisters in Burundi. In 2019, the Edmonton diocese raised $5,712 USD for these cards. As people throughout the world grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s even more important that we do it again. Medical coverage is out of reach for most seniors in Buyé Diocese, but our support will help the Buyé Mothers Union to buy and distribute medical cards providing 80% coverage for a full year for seniors, vulnerable women and children under 18.
The cards are $5 each and donations can be made through your parish or through the diocesan website. 100% of the funds go to the purchase of medical cards. Please send all donations directly to John Gee at the Synod Office, or donate online through Tithely.
With our thanks, the Rev. Rebecca Harris and the Rev. Danielle Key. POSTER
