logo_oxfam If you do utilise the resource, please could you consider donating to the cyclone emergency disaster fund, Bangladesh when I visited was just recovering from the floods of the summer, the cyclone has compacted the problems that the country faced, particularly in rural areas. To put our wealth into context, £150 would build a three bedroom house in Tanguil

Please feel free to provide feedback.

    how much have you donated to the cyclone emergency disaster fund?

    This is a personal question which I will not answer. It doesn’t matter how much someone gives, see the parable of the generous widow, Luke 21 1-4. There’s a little R.E. education for you.

    Great resources Tony.
    Have publicised as requested. Let’s wait and see the donations roll in (or the downloads roll out – I can guess which are likely to be the greatest…)

    Thanks Alan and thanks for you help as always.

    I’ll be interested to see the downloads figures, but as long as it raises the profile of the event and the challenges the country faces it has done its job.

    Great resources as always Tony, many thanks. Hopefully it will raise the level of concern and encourage action, rather than just a handy resource to fill someone’s lesson.

    Tony,
    An outstanding resource. I am hoping to create something via a contact made with a BBC correspondant in the South Asia area, and will of course send them your way.
    In addition, we have been asked to write an example of an “excellent” lesson for the TES. We have based it on Memory Maps, which we used to introduce Bangladesh. May be of use.
    Best Wishes
    Pete

    Best wishes
