Grace does amazing things. See for yourself.
Thanks from Thailand
22 February 2012
Late last year, Thailand experienced its worst floods in decades. As a result of unusually heavy monsoonal rains, hundreds of people died, crops were obliterated and residential and business districts severely damaged.
Following a request from the Anglican Church in Thailand, Anglican Aid made a one off emergency donation towards the Church’s flood relief and cleanup efforts. Consequently, three mobile cleaning teams were equipped and deployed to assist those severely affected by the floods.
At the beginning of this month, Rev Yee Ching Wah, Dean of Thailand, was pleased to report that the Church’s cleanup effort had gone well. ‘We thank you for standing together with the Thai people in our time of crisis. Victims of the flood have been able to return to normal life following the cleanup and restoration which was completed over the New Year period.’
Director of Anglican Aid, David Mansfield, reflects on ways we can let grace flow.
Since 1990, aid has helped to reduce extreme poverty, including almost halving the number of children around the world who die before their fifth birthday – 14,000 fewer children dying every single day.
Let's help make poverty history by giving our fair share of aid – just 70 cents in every $100 of Australia’s national income by 2020.
As a step towards contributing our fair share, by 2016 we’re asking our political leaders to fulfill their bipartisan promise to give 50 cents in every $100 to tackle global poverty
