Update from our link diocese of Kimberley and Kuruman, South Africa

The Stratfield Mortimer Benefice Altar Server’s Lent Mission has for many years raised money for children and young people in need in our link Diocese of Kimberley and Kuruman.  

In 1993, the Diocese of Oxford and the Diocese of Kimberley and Kuruman in South Africa formed a partnership link which continues to the present day.  The funds from the Lent Mission are used as part of the support for the ‘Hope for the Living Project’ in Roodepan.  This project offers vulnerable children and young people food and support with learning and enrichment activities.  

The Diocese of Oxford’s World Development Advisor, Maranda St John Nicolle, provides updates of the work and support which can be viewed at on the blog page: Kimberley and Kuruman.
