Archbishop’s Emergency Relief Appeal
The Archbishop’s Emergency Relief Appeal exists to make funds available to local parishes affected by drought, flood, fire or other emergencies in order to assist families in need with the purchase of groceries and other basic necessities, often from shops or service providers in their local communities. All money raised is spent on helping these families in need. Gifts are also made to other dioceses when emergencies strike them.
Anglican Board of Mission (ABM)
Every Lent and Advent, envelopes are available for donations to ABM appeals. You can support these and other emergency appeals online via https://www.abmission.org/appeals.php
Lent and Good Friday 2022 Appeal: Al Ahli Child Nutrition Project
Your gift will change the lives of many communities living in poverty.
In a busy wing of the Al Ahli Hospital in Gaza, little Manna is being weighed by Hanan, a general nurse working in the hospital’s paediatric unit. Like all too many babies in Gaza, Manna was born severely underweight. Her mother, Heba, says, “I took Manna to many doctors and nurses before, but she didn’t improve”. Now, aged seven months, Manna has made good progress since she was taken into the Ahli’s Child Nutrition Program a month ago. After four visits to the program, she’s doing well. Her weight has improved, and she’s now moved from “severely” to “moderately” underweight. Heba says, “Here at the Ahli, the nurse measured my child and gave me some advice, and now she has benefitted. I’m very happy.” Read more.
