You can help Anglican Aid respond to the COVID-19 crisis in many parts of the world, by supporting Christian partners to care for COVID patients with ventilators, oxygen machines and cylinders, medicine, PPE, and more. We are also providing food relief for communities who are struggling with hunger during lockdowns across the globe.
We work with churches and Christian organisations that are at the forefront of providing services for the sick and vulnerable in developing countries. As the pandemic stretches on, their capacity to respond and meet the needs of the people around them are likewise stretched.
Spikes in COVID-19 case numbers are an ever-present concern, as the deadly Delta variant creates moving ‘hotspots’ that threaten to overwhelm our partners.
Anglican Aid has over 130 partners in 35 countries. We don’t know where the next COVID crisis will take hold, but we are well placed to rapidly send aid to emerging hotspots, through believers on the ground. You can help servants of Christ overseas to be ready to respond to COVID outbreaks in their communities.
Your tax-deductible gift will provide medical supplies and food relief to COVID hotspots overseas in the name of Jesus.Give now
For example, Myanmar is currently in the grip of surging COVID cases, deep political turmoil since the coup in February, and a collapsed health system. Many healthcare workers are being attacked or arrested. Anglican Aid’s partner, the Church of the Province of Myanmar reports many of their contacts are dangerously ill. Official government COVID numbers don’t show the extent of those infected by the virus.
Archbishop Stephen Than Myint Oo says,
“In the midst of immense suffering, I have no strength to utter a word. I feel like we are in the World War III: not fighting against flesh and blood, rather fighting against the invisible threes: COVID-19; powers and principalities of darkness; and self-centredness.”
Anglican Aid is helping provide our brothers and sisters in Myanmar with desperately needed medical supplies including oxygen, PPE, medicine, and additional hospital beds.
Can you help?
Rev. Moses Israel from the Diocese of Singapore, through whom we are channeling our support to Myanmar, has called Australian brothers and sisters to prayer:
“In the midst of dead bodies lying everywhere, may the living beings unite in prayer with one heart, one mind, one Spirit. May God help us! Amen.”
