LENTEN APPEAL FOR POST-CYCLONE MOZAMBIQUE – Posters available for download
HOPE Africa has produced special posters for parishes and organisations for this year’s church-wide Lenten Appeal.
The appeal is dedicated to helping Mozambican Anglicans to rebuild their lives, homes, schools and churches after last year’s Tropical Cyclones Idai and Kenneth.
The Appeal was mandated by Provincial Synod last September. Relevant paragraphs of the Synod resolution follow:
Synod Acknowledging that:
(a) International aid agencies only intervene in crisis situations for a limited time and are not part of longer- term reconstruction in the community.
(b) The church belongs to the community and will be a part of the longer-term reconstruction, recovery and healing of the community.
(c) Disasters of the magnitude of cyclones Idai and Kenneth need a longer intervention with a holistic developmental plan for the communities.
Synod hereby resolves to respectfully request the Archbishop to:
(a) Declare that the Lenten collections for 2020 be taken in all Dioceses and Parishes for the reconstruction and development work in Mozambique, and that materials for Bible study and discussion to be disseminated throughout the Province.
(b) Request HOPE Africa to support the work of reconstruction and development in collaboration with the three Dioceses in Mozambique.
(c) Request HOPE Africa to produce information on the relief work to be communicated to ACSA and our partners in collaboration with ACSA media.
