Lent and Good Friday Appeal 2022
Each year during Lent and Holy Week our parish supports the work of the Anglican Board of Mission – Australia, which helps communities in need, both within Australia and overseas.
The Al Ahli Child Nutrition Project is just one of the many AID (Anglicans in Development) Sustainable Communities projects which will benefit from the ABM Lent and Good Friday Gift Appeal this year. In Gaza, long-afflicted by sanctions and war, it can be a huge challenge for families to buy nutritious food. Many are dependent on refugee rations which are often high in calories but low in nutrition. As well as educating the mothers in nutrition, encouraging breast-feeding and keeping a close eye on the babies’ progress, the hospital gives the mothers fortified biscuits and multivitamins to supplement the babies’ regular diet. Eighty percent of children who participate in the program improve. And when they don’t, they can participate for a further three months – if crucial funding can continue…
A range of other projects include strengthening communities in the Philippines by teaching them vital skills, and supporting women in Kenya to raise poultry for improved family nutrition.
Your gift will change the lives of many communities living in poverty. It will support AID partners to gain training themselves so that they can continue to provide much-needed support to their local communities.
