Christian Peacemaker Teams’ income for the first 6 months of this financial year is US$77,000 less than the same period last year. This is a drop of 23%. Can you help us make up that shortfall this month?
In 2008, just as we were expanding our programme work in Africa and the Philippines the global economic recession hit and we incurred a large deficit. In 2009 we asked for your concerted support. We also reduced expenses CPT wide and suspended new projects.
You came through! We were able to sustain our core work in Colombia, Iraq, Palestine, Canada, Undoing Racism, to continue a bit of support for the Borderlands work, and to balance the budget.
Now in 2010 a reduction in donations in the continuing recession is threatening this core work too. So today we again ask for your strong support from a tight space. To continue this work, and to take up the work which was suspended in 2008, we need your financial support. You are an essential part of the global struggle for peace with justice.
