Courageous Chinese Christians at centre of deadly coronavirus outbreak risking everything to care for their neighbours – please help
Immensely courageous Christians in Wuhan, at the very centre of the deadly coronavirus outbreak, are putting the care of their neighbours above their own safety, as they seek to help everyone in need.
Brave believers are risking their own health to hand out protective masks, gloves and hygiene supplies to panicked and desperate people on the streets of the quarantined city.
Protective masks are the most valuable items in Wuhan. Supplies are gone from every shelf in every shop. Christians are now choosing to go without themselves to give masks to others in need.
Christian leaders infected with the virus, some still hospitalised in Wuhan, have contacted us to ask for prayer and help with their basic needs as they recover.
Barnabas is able to get precious protective hygiene items and relief aid rapidly to Christians in Wuhan through our trusted regional partners who are standing by.
Whatever you can give will help us to send essential hygiene packs to protect courageous Christians, and those they are helping, in stricken Wuhan.
Christian leaders already suffering from coronavirus are also desperately in need of our practical support.
£4 ($5; $4.50) will provide a protective hygiene pack including:
- Protective respirator masks
- Protective surgical gloves
- Sanitiser supplies including gels and wipes
£220 ($285; €265) will help a Christian leader suffering from coronavirus with their basic needs as they recover.
