The United Society for the Propagation of the Gospel (USPG) has recently launched its special Learn to Live fundraising health appeal. The appeal focuses on how children and adults suffering from disability or incurable disease in the developing world can be given the chance to live a full and active life through education, information and the effective provision of resources.

Appeal Organiser, Maggie Woods, said, "Many people are not aware that in the developing world the Church is a major funder of vital health care. Through our Learn to Live appeal we hope that as many churches and individual Christians as possible will take the opportunity to support the appeal."

USPG's Learn to Live health pack includes sermon notes, a fundraising appeal, background information, a poster and other useful resources.

Founded in 1701, USPG works in partnership with Anglican and United Churches in more than 50 countries worldwide, exchanging people, resources and training for mission.
