Update on Afghanistan

We are horrified at the unfolding disaster in Afghanistan. Anglican Aid has received reports that Christians are being hunted down by the Taliban, and they are very likely to be executed. Borders are guarded so the only way out is via evacuation plane from Kabul airport.
Anglican Aid is currently developing plans together with various partners to provide for those who have managed to escape by plane or over the border into Pakistan. We will keep you updated and will launch an appeal when we have greater certainty. In the meantime, we urge you to pray for protection for our Christian brothers and sisters in particular.
Archbishop of Sydney Kanishka Raffel has released a video leading a prayer for Afghanistan.
