Cyclone Idai swept through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe mid March 2019 affecting 3 million people and causing over 750 deaths. Anglican Missions launched this appeal to support the Anglican Diocese of Niassa as it helps communities affected by the floods to purchase seeds and re-establish crops. Since this event, the strongest cyclone ever to hit Mozambique (Cyclone Kenneth) struck landfall on April 25th flattening villages and either destroyoing or severely damaging over 35,000 houses. It’s come just one month after Cyclone Idai which at the most recent count led to over 900 fatalities across Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe. Bishop Vincente of the Diocese of Niassa in Mozambique contacted Anglican Missions yesterday (30th April) sending a number of recent photos; thanking us for the donations that have already been sent through and asking for ongoing prayer. more»

Tropical Cyclone Gita struck a number of Pacific Island countries in February, particularly Tonga. The Category 5 Cyclone was the most severe storm to hit Tonga in over 60 years, causing 2 fatalities, 41 injuries and destroying at least 171 houses. As a result of many generous donations, including AAW and the H&W Williams Trust, over $90,000 has been raised.
From our Cyclone Gita Emergency Appeal, your donations have helped us purchase two shipping containers which are full of building materials, tools and pre-positioned relief items which have now arrived in the capital, Nuku'alofa, (Friday 6 July).

The challenges our church has faced over the last year has resulted in a large shortfall in money received vs. money pledged to our partners overseas. Although the giving is down, the Anglican Missions Board made a promise to our partners, and so has made a commitment, in faith, to meet our pledged support to them in 2013. But unless we can raise an extra $60,000 by the end of the year, we will need to reduce our commitment to each of our partners by between 5 to 10 percent next year. That's a lot of mission that can't happen anymore. Can you help us to continue overseas mission by donating today? more»

Most of us don't share our pain or distress easily. If we do, we will look for someone we can trust, who we know will listen without judgement or condemnation. The House of Sarah offers a listening ear, support and a place of refuge to those who need it most. There are stories to tell, but we can't tell them as yet. It has drawn many people to its doors who have deep needs for prayer and counselling. more»
