Jess has mental health problems and poor physical mobility. She struggles to cope with her finances and has suddenly come up against a short-term crisis with her car insurance, for which she has sought help from Citizens Advice. They will try to sort out her finances, but her immediate need is to keep her car insurance going for a further month, as she will be scarcely mobile if she can't continue driving. Jess would greatly appreciate a donation for the premium.

This young woman is a lone parent of a three month old child who suffers from a club foot. He wears bars to try and correct the issue and needs a sturdy pushchair which is wide enough at the bottom to accommodate the bars. She is in receipt of benefits and is struggling financially so she cannot afford to purchase one. This is becoming more of an issue as he grows and is heavier to carry, so I am hoping that you may be able to help. Many thanks.
A tragic story. H was bullied at school. She changed schools but the bullying continued. H's mother's appeal to the school met with little success. H began to stop eating and drinking and eventually was admitted to hospital. The lack of fluid had damaged her internal organs so she was taken to a special unit 50 miles away. Her mother, a single parent of 2, cannot work with the stress and the travel costs to see her daughter are prohibitive. This grant will make a huge difference for this family.
L's partner has a medical condition which generates a lot of washing and in addition she looks after her young grandchild. so when her washing machine broke down this week it was a disaster.

Gaby hopes that kind donors from Acts 435 will help her with the fee.
Ann has profound depression and suffers frequent panic attacks. She's mostly unable to get out of the house and has been relying on her Mum to buy most of her food. Even with help from Citizens Advice, Ann hasn't yet been able to get the full benefits to which she's entitled and is therefore struggling to afford the basic necessities. A donation to help Ann stock up her food cupboard would be extremely helpful while Citizens Advice keep trying to get Ann's benefits resolved.

He struggles with a number of medical conditions and is unable to go out as much as he likes. Recently his flat was burgled and his TV was stolen. He is not able to buy a new one and he has become isolated without it. Your donation to a TV for K would help him to feel less isolated and be a message of blessing to him.
R is currently working with Christians Against Poverty to get help with his debts. He was evicted from his flat because of rent arrears built up after stopping work due to post traumatic stress.
