The work of CSW

 

 

     CSW may not be a charity that makes the headlines but across the Woodfield Team, we have supported their work. What is their work?

     CSW's team of specialist advocates work in over 20 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, to ensure that the right to freedom of religion or belief is upheld and protected.  Their  vision is a world free from religious persecution, where everyone can practice a religion or belief of their choice.  In the face of so much injustice in our world, this is important work.

  We have become involved as Adam Cheetham (a member of the Woodfield Team, worshipping at St John’s, Donisthorpe) is an Ambassador for CSW. Adam says: “I have chosen to be a point of contact within the team, distributing their literature, making petitions available and giving talks throughout the Team, all to raise awareness of the plight of our brothers and sisters who are not afforded their right to freedom of religion or belief. You may also remember my sponsored event in 2019 when I drank only water for 40 days, and ate of course.  Thank you so much for the support you gave me during that event, it was greatly appreciated and kept me going through the dark times.”
