Projects we support in Australia

Anglican Aid's Community Care program helps churches in disadvantaged areas run projects with and for people in need. Behind those projects are some amazing people who make it all happen, through prayer and generous use of their time, resources and gifts. God-inspired creativity in responding to specific needs is essential to the success of these projects.

You can click through to each project to support that specific project, or to support Australian Community Care generally, click the "Support a project" button and type "General: Community Care" into the form.
