The Bishop of St Albans’ Harvest Appeal 2017
‘Full of Beans’
The 2017 Bishop’s Harvest Appeal, ‘Full of Beans’, is supporting the development of community projects which transform the lives of people in remote rural villages of the Philippines – in the Tinglayan mountain district, they have discovered their soil is perfect for growing high quality beans.
Helen (pictured) now enjoys a generous harvest of beans, sufficient for her family to eat well, with more to sell at market. Consequently, her family’s life has improved significantly, they are able to buy basic house-hold items such as salt, sugar and soap, her children also now have the required educational resources for their schooling. They look forward to a much brighter future.
With your support to this year’s Harvest Appeal, ‘Full of Beans’, we hope that many more families can experience this transformational change, become self-reliant, filled with dignity and hopeful for their future.
Thank you in anticipation of the support you plan to give to ‘Full of Beans’.
