The Archbishop of Sydney’s Anglican Aid Partners
The Archbishop of Sydney’s Anglican Aid (Anglican Aid) commenced in 1934, during the depression years when the Archbishop of Sydney encouraged churches to support those trapped in poverty by providing assistance with food, clothing and shelter. In 1971 The Archbishop of Sydney’s Overseas Relief and Aid Fund (ORAF) was established to extend relief to people in desperate need internationally. The Archbishop of Sydney’s Overseas Ministry Fund was established in 2000 to assist churches with evangelism. The Archbishop of Sydney’s Anglican Aid was established in 2011, bringing together the three funds under one board.
As part of the Global Anglican Communion, Anglican Aid's established networks enable partnerships with Anglican Churches across the world, and Christian partners where no Anglican presence exists. Anglican Aid does not deliver services but resources its partners in Australia and 33 countries to provide development and relief aid as well disaster relief, welfare support and ministry development.
Anglican Aid and its funds are each registered with the Australian Charities and Not for Profits Commission and complies with all domestic and international laws relating to anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism financing. All Anglican Aid partners are required to comply with these international obligations.
