Jericho Road Drought Appeal – Just include in the reference “Jericho Rd Drought” when you make your donation and we will make sure it goes to the right place.
“Where do the funds go?” and “Will they really help?” are commonly asked questions when it comes to things like the Drought Appeal. So here are some answers…
All funds raised through Jericho Road for the drought – 100% – are distributed via local congregations in drought affected areas. The congregations can distribute them as they wish – so sometimes it is to a specific family for a specific purpose, other times they will purchase food or vouchers and distribute those more widely to those in need. The reason for this is that they know the real needs of the people in their area, and they can deliver the assistance in person. This in turn allows for the assistance to be provided thoughtfully and as an act of God’s people in that town, showing the love of Jesus.
For example, in one town the local congregation have arranged (among other things) to provide vehicle servicing for farm vehicles. This is often left undone during drought due to the cost, which then results in breakdowns and further unexpected costs in the long run. It also means local service station businesses are not getting income, which affects their families as well. So by providing funds to do this it helps the farmers and the local businesses. Another congregation is purchasing fresh water for distribution and still another feed for stock.
There is no “target” for fundraising – we just distribute whatever we get.
