HOPE for those hit
TRINITY ANNUIAL CONFERENCE (TRAC) is organising a series of “Recession Fairs” as its way of helping people affected by the recession.
Three churches, each representing one of the districts in the East, West and Central, will take turns to host the Fair, named HOPE – Helping Our People: A Faith Response to the Economic Recession.
HOPE’s first target is TRAC members who are hit by the recession and second, the rest of the community in each district.
The Fair will deal with the core aspects of legal considerations (educational “advice”), financial and debt management issues, counselling and prayer. The format of the Fairs may vary but the core issues they respond to will be the same.
The Rev Dr Wee Boon Hup, President of TRAC, said as the country is now in the midst of a recession, many have been asking what TRAC is going to do in response to the situation.
He said that at a TRAC Executive Board Retreat in March, “we decided to run a series of ‘Recession Fairs’ as our way of helping people who are affected by the crisis”.
Publicity for the other Fairs will be sent to churches in due course.
