Update from Madeleine Brownell, High Bray Church Treasurer & Appeal Co-ordinator

Simon Rooksby, Chairman of Computers for Charities, a charity that focuses on assistance to the needy in war-torn areas of Eastern Europe by working through the churches there, is in Ukraine now, having traveled out there two weeks ago with supplies. He has sent the following email to me today:
"I am still in the Ukraine. But pleased we have managed to travel around to areas and places of need unhindered. Since going south of Hungary, temperatures have soared. Yesterday 56c. Air con has died on the van and suspension impaired because of the roads or lack of them. Have visited churches in Moldova & Ukraine to preach and pray for people. Witnessing many healings of sickness. Which is good news. It's hard to describe apart from the stoic nature of the Ukrainian's. And as such aiming to head back next week. Then return again in around 8 weeks time.”
Our support over these past 4 months has made these trips possible. Thank you to all who have participated.
