The Vanuatu Government ordered a full-scale evacuation of the island of Ambae in the north of the country due to eruptions from the massive Manaro Volcano. In reponse, ABM has launched an Emergency Appeal to assist victims affected by this natural disaster, and seeks to raise AU$10,000. We are working closely with the Anglican Church of Melanesia in Vanuatu, using these funds to ensure essential supplies of food and water are delivered to those in greatest need.

Tropical Cyclone Donna left a trail of damage in parts of Vanuatu with the Northern provinces most affected, in particular the Torba Province in the Anglican Diocese of Banks and Torres where many Anglicans live. ABM launched an emergency appeal seeking to raise $20,000 to assist ACOMV in the relief and recovery effort in the Torba Province. Funds will go towards food, shelter and clean water, plus sanitation and hygiene needs for those affected by Tropical Cyclone Donna. Some relief aid has been delivered but there is still much more to do.

ABM originally launched the Syria Emergency Appeal in September 2013 to provide emergency relief to many of the casualties, internally displaced persons and refugees in and around Syria. Due to the worsening humanitarian crisis, a new response was launched earlier this year by ACT Alliance. Through our membership with ACT Alliance, ABM is accepting donations in support of other ACT members in the region who are responding to the ongoing refugee crisis.
