Urgent Appeal for 66 Order members in India

By Centre Team on Sat, 17 Apr, 2021 - 22:19

Dear Friends,

The second wave of covid is causing poverty, distress and death in India. Very sadly we have lost several members of the Order to covid in recent days. Currently 15 Order members are unwell with covid to the point of needing medicines and / or oxygen. With public health supplies running low, these things need to be paid for privately. We want to send £150 to each of these Order members to give them this ability.

Donate to the emergency appeal
