Motion text

That this House welcomes the launch of Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund’s 2021 Wee Box, Big Change Lent Appeal; understands that the this year's appeal aims to support children with disabilities in South Sudan who are locked out of education and trapped in a cycle of poverty; notes that the appeal encourages people to put the money they would have spent on the items they have given up for Lent into a SCIAF Wee Box to donate to the charity; recognises that the money raised is used to support people in developing countries out of poverty; acknowledges that the UK Government will match any donation received before 11 May 2021; and encourages Members of Parliament to promote the appeal to their constituents.
