The Stamp Appeal is an easy way for your congregation to get involved in the world mission work of the church.
This year the Stamp Project proceeds will benefit The Women's Development Centre (WDC) in Kandy, Sri Lanka, which runs a project to support women and girls who have been victims of rape and sexual violence.
The WDC gives these women somewhere to stay, supports them in caring for their children, helps them return to education if they wish, and trains them in skills they can use to make a living when they leave. The WDC has a social enterprise and café where the women can work and sell their hand-made products.
The team at WDC care for and heal girls who are vulnerable and often discarded by their families. It is impossible not to be moved by what they do. Help support them by collecting used stamps which are then sold on.
You can put up a Stamp Appeal 2021 poster in your church or community building.
