Refreshment - Mission to India 2019
Time & Location
About the Event
In November 2019, Refreshment UK will be organising their third trip to India as part of a partnership with Faith India Ministries who work in the village of Kotipalli, Andhra Pradesh, SE India. FIM specifically minister to Dalits (known locally as the untouchables).
Our trip will be to support their work and to get involved in a series of mission activities in one of the most deprived parts of Andhra Pradesh.
We are planning to use Emirates Airlines to fly to our location. We are planning on taking a group of 4-6 and this mission will be led by people who have conducted missions to the area before.
Each attendee will be expected to pay a deposit of £100 for the trip and then, pay or raise their expenses for this trip. This is a figure of £1000 (total cost of £1100). Refreshment UK can support you with fundraising for this. This amount includes flights, food, visas, accommodation, all activities and insurance, but not spending money.
