Taps for Afghanistan, Nepal, Democratic Republic of Congo and Guatemala

Thanks to the money raised by Tayside Christian Fellowship for Tearfund’s Tap Twinning Appeal over Christmas, we now know where our taps are going to be installed.  In future, simply by turning on our tap free flowing, fresh drinking water will be available to these four local communities for the first time.

Four certificates are now on display in the church with the grateful thanks of Tap Twinning who stated, “Your support will literally save lives.”

Footwise – Spaces filling fast

TCF’s Footwise Clinic on the 1st Thursday of each month is rapidly becoming a popular ministry for folks in and around Perth.  Our foot care volunteers have received basic toenail cutting and foot health training from the NHS, to provide this service.

Footwise is appropriate for people who are in reasonably good health but who are unable to undertake their own footcare.  Some may have previously been seen by the NHS.  Since the beginning of the year, our register of clients is filling up fast.  Don’t leave it too late.  If not for you, do you know someone who would benefit from this service?  Enquiries can be made by calling Hazel on 07907 880545.

These are just some of the recent comments made by our clients:
