Pakistan Appeal

We were delighted to welcome Zeeshan and Suniya James and Sarah Lawrence from Pakistan to the Youth Assembly this year (pictured below). Almost everyone has heard about the recent floods which have devastated that country and at the Saturday night charity dinner over £3500 was given to support the Disaster Emergency Committee‘s Pakistan Appeal. You can follow the latest news about the floods at the BBC’s special report microsite.

We hope to get some of our foreign visitors to Cosy events to be able to contribute to this blog in future and tell us about the situation of young people in their own churches so keep an eye out for that. Another thing which might be of interest is that Sandy Sneddon from the Church of Scotland’s World Mission Council (who helped coordinate the visit) has just set off on a visit to Pakistan and will be blogging about it here.
