Tough times can bring out the best in people. Across the country, we're hearing stories of compassion, generosity, community spirit. From the children putting rainbow pictures in their windows, to the volunteers stepping up to support the NHS, everywhere you can see people taking simple actions that make a meaningful difference to others. There's hope in every one of these acts.
You might feel like there’s not much you can do to help others right now. It’s normal to feel tired, overwhelmed or powerless in response to events like this. But there are simple things we can do to combat those feelings and make a positive difference in the world.
Remember God hasn't changed
Isaiah 41:13 says 'For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, "Do not fear; I will help you."'
We have a kind and courageous God. And we still have each other, even if we can’t meet in person right now.
Join forces for good
Alone, we might be limited in what we can do. But when we work together, we can change lives.
One of CAP's greatest strengths is our network of partner churches. Up and down the UK, compassionate Christians are ready to get to work. We have a plan. We have volunteers. And we have an easy way for you to be involved.
At CAP, we're well placed to understand the needs of some of the most vulnerable people in society. People who've lost jobs due to the lockdown, whose already precarious situations have just been made worse by the outbreak. So we're going to deliver emergency aid to those most desperately in need. We're also planning for the future, making sure we're poised and ready to respond to an increased need for debt help. We want to offer a lifeline to anyone in financial turmoil due to coronavirus.
Our coronavirus appeal means that you can give vital support to someone who needs it, and ensure CAP is ready to help those thrown into financial difficulty by coronavirus. But more than that, you're telling them they're not forgotten or invisible. You're making sure today contains a little bit more hope than yesterday did.
Make a difference to someone's life today. Be part of our coronavirus appeal.
