Juniors raise over £8,000 for ‘A Place to Play – Jordan’

Wednesday 18th December 2019

Well done to our Juniors from Presbyterian Companies in the District who supported the PCI Junior BB Project last session: ‘A Place to Play – Jordan’.

Over £8,000 was raised to construct and equip a playground at a Church-run school for refugee children in the town of Fuhais in Jordan, where a local church provides free education to 32 children aged 4 to 13 years old. The children are mainly from Syria and Iraq with a couple from Egypt. Preparations are underway to purchase the equipment for the playground.

4th Newtownabbey Juniors raised over £1,700 for the project and are pictured handing over the cheque to Presbyterian Moderator Dr William Henry.

 The 2019-2020 PCI Junior BB Project is ‘Reaching Higher – Kenya’ which will set its sights on raising funds to help build a nursery school for children living in the mountains of the Maasailand heartland in southern Kenya. Working with over 200 sections, the project gives Companies in PCI congregations the opportunity to help raise funds in support of an overseas project.
