BEFSA Christmas Appeal
This year we have launched the BEFSA Christmas Appeal to raise money for children we work with who have lost their parents or who have been abandoned.
Christmas is an expensive time for all of us, but if you can spare some extra cash to contribute to our hardship appeal, we will provide children who find themselves alone this Christmas with food, clothes, and toys.
Thank you. As always, your support is greatly appreciated by the BEFSA team and those we work with.
