Anglican Missions has launched an Emergency Appeal in support of the Anglican Church of Melanesia (ACoM) to assist in its work in helping the evacuated residents of Ambae Island, Vanuatu. ACoM asked Anglican Missions to assist with the immediate response and we joined the Anglican Board of Missions (Australia), Anglican Overseas Aid (Australia) and Episcopal Relief and Development (USA) in providing funds to support the Church in its initial response to the evacuation.
Funding from Anglican Missions has been used to procure emergency response items including food and water and to help equip churches and church facilities as they are used as evacuation centres.
Here is a recent update on the situation in Vanuatu:
Please continue to pray for the people of Vanuatu. If you or your parish would like donate to this Appeal, please go to Donate. N.B. We are having some problems processing credit card donations through our website, so please bear with us as our web designer follows this up.
