COVID-19: Our Global Response

Sharing out of our abundance with brothers and sisters overseas

This Appeal is now closed.

Thank you so much for your generosity.

“In Aotearoa, many Anglicans have not lost their income, and some have even saved money during this period.  I encourage you to get together in families, house churches and parishes and think creatively about how you can give into these places with great need.  Every one of us can support these initiatives in prayer, and if you can give financially, I encourage you to give generously.”

Bishop Justin Duckworth, Bishop of Wellington

  • Tools, seeds and grocery packs planned for poverty-stricken Fijians

     “Currently poverty is rife across the islands,”

    Bishop Henry Bull, Bishop of Vanua Levu

    Our gift will support grocery packs for vulnerable families and contribute to the investment in tools, seeds and seedlings so that each parish can have a tool shed from which members can borrow what they need to re-establish their sources of income.

  • Malnutrition, poverty compounded by pandemic in Mozambique

    “People are not afraid of dying of the pandemic, but of hunger.  We receive petitions for food support but with limited funds, we are unable to meet these requests.”

    Funds raised will contribute to more food support for those facing pre-existing malnutrition.
