A 52 year old asylum seeker living in Leeds is volunteering and benefiting from help at the Meeting Point Project. He has a 12 year old daughter and he is studying. Currently, there is political crisis in Bolivia and for this reason he needs a mobile phone. His current phone no longer works and he has found one for £110. Please help him to purchase a phone and keep in good communication with his daughter, be available with the volunteering, and follow news from his home country.
J has had a difficult life and experienced so much loss. She has very little in terms of possessions apart from her car, which she has used periodically to live in. The car tax is now due but she currently has no income, nor the mental capacity to progress or manage a claim for benefits. The car gives her some sense of security as something she has managed to keep hold of and that she knows she can sleep there if she loses her accommodation (which has happened a number of times).
S is on a very low income. Her partner has just been made redundant, but he was self employed and so he cannot claim benefits. They are in great need of a carpet for their home, as it is currently bare so it is cold and unwelcoming. She would be very grateful for any help that can be given towards this.
A family within our church lost their 3rd child just under a week after he was born at 26 weeks due to pre-eclampsia. Despite the best efforts of the medical teams, he is now at peace in heaven. Understandably the family are grieving, questioning and still suffering due to the effects of the pre-eclampsia. Please could you pray for this family and support them by contributing towards the memorial costs.
This young man is appealing his refused asylum claim and has to pay £120 to the tribunal service for his appeal to proceed. I have been supporting this young man for 3 years and know he has no recourse to benefits and neither is he allowed to work. He would really appreciate your help to pay this fee.
M and M are struggling financially and working with Christians Against Poverty for debt help. They have been offered a free family weekend away in December, but they would not be able to afford transport to get there. This holiday would be the first in years and an opportunity to spend time together with meals provided and walks on the coast. It is hard to measure the extent that this would refresh this family.
A has been working with Christians Against Poverty for debt help. She has been offered a free holiday for herself and her daughter over Christmas. A is unemployed and has health issues and would not be able to afford the petrol. A gift towards transport to this break would be very gratefully received.
S comes from a broken and abusive home but despite this is such a positive individual. S is attending our CAP Job club and is currently building on his skills to improve his chances of employment. S has also started volunteering at the local well being cafe. S has been offered a free place on a Christians Against Poverty christmas break away, which would be a fantastic opportunity to meet new friends and be blessed with a holiday that he just can not afford. S needs £60 for a return train ticket
Mr A brought his family to the UK from abroad and he wants to start working so that he can support his family better.

Please help him with this cost so that he can get a job and provide for his family in the UK.
