The Helping Hand Appeal 2006
During the months of March, every corps and centre in the territory was fundraising to help our neighbours, Sumatra to: 1. Raise a Hand to buy resource books for a library; 2. Lend a Hand to do some repairs and painting (both 1. and 2. At Medan Boys Home); 3. Give a Hand to villages to become more self-supporting by planting groves of citrus trees and chilli bushes in some rural villages outside Medan. THQ also did their part for the appeal. Different department staff worked together to prepare home-made food for lunches and snacks on their chosen days during the month. Staff made reasonable donations for the food and other items available, all in the endeavour to surpass the THQ goal of $2,000 (Figure extracted from The Salvation Army War Cry (April 2006) (P.S. Over $3,000 was raised as at 12 April 2006)
