Self Denial Appeal 2023 - it’s not too late to give your gift from the heart
For women like Rose (see video below) hope, worth, dignity and transformation are not just words. Programs like the Worth Project for women in the Kenya West Territory, funded by the funds raised through the Self Denial Appeal, mean life with a stable income, better education, new skills and hope for the future, is now actually possible.
They are no longer locked in grinding poverty with no hope in sight for themselves or their children.
Rose has now gone from a mud hut and relying on her husband’s inadequate income to learning to read and write, running her own business, educating her children and growing enough food for the family and to sell.
She wants her next purchase to be a motorbike – to carry more food to the market store, and to go to church to praise God for all he has done in her life and in her community.
Self Denial in Australia
The Salvation Army’s work in Kenya and Papua New Guinea is highlighted in this year’s appeal.
The theme for the Self Denial Appeal 2023 is ‘A Gift from the Heart’. It encourages us to consider the blessings we have from God and how we can use those to bless other people.
Please consider donating to this year’s appeal – it’s not too late! Your donations can help The Salvation Army meet their commitments in the field to people like Rose.
Donations can be accepted until 30 June (end of Financial Year).
When you give to the Self Denial Appeal you can choose to give your gift to mission support OR community development.
Mission Support funds are non-tax-deductible. They support the evangelical ministries delivered in developing countries. These funds are also used for the provision of church halls, residences for officers, computers and training.
Community Development donations are tax-deductible and only support community development projects. Examples include projects for poverty alleviation, clean water and microfinance.
