Baroness Cox HART Christmas Message 2017

Greetings to all the HART Family this Christmas time! 

Christmas is a time of celebration for all Christians, when we rejoice in our belief in our God who loves His people so much that He became incarnate – to live and die amongst us and for us. 

This wonderful message of Love is reflected in the lives and work of all our HART partners – whatever their faiths. 

I would like to share three examples where our partners dedicate themselves with inspirational commitment in very challenging situations:

Dr. Sasa, whose precious Training Centre for Community Health Workers in remote jungle in Chin State was destroyed by a cyclone, has been working hard to raise funds to rebuild the Centre and continue his life-saving training programme. 

Vardan continues to extend transformational care for people with disabilities in his Centre and for families living in more remote locations. Vardan is characteristically humble: when I congratulated him on his phenomenal achievements, he simply said ‘You gave me the wings, so I could fly’. 

Archbishop Moses Deng, in wartorn South Sudan, risked going to prison for borrowing money from local traders to buy food for hundreds of people who had fled to his compound, dying of starvation. He works tirelessly to rebuild schools, clinics and to develop agriculture to enable people to grow their own food and not to have to rely on ‘hand outs’.

Thank you for helping these and all our partners to fulfil their visions of living the ‘Christmas message’ of ‘Love in Action’ which is also the mission and mandate of HART. 

With warmest wishes, 
Baroness Cox
