COVID-19 Emergency Fund
“It is something we never thought would happen to us… We are grateful for the love and care shown to us.”
(Comment from a recipient of rice and cooking oil in Mozambique’s Anglican Diocese of Niassa.)
AID’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund has already expended more than $55,000 in over ten countries.
Through the Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa (CAPA), the fund has been used to help some of the most vulnerable people across seven African countries. The money reached vulnerable families in the Congo, parishes and schools in Cameroon and girls missing out on receiving sanitary towels in Kenya because their school has closed indefinitely. It also reached people living in an informal settlement in Nairobi who lost their livelihoods, and homeless people in South Africa. Local Anglican churches distributed basic food staples, sanitary towels, large water containers fitted with taps, soap, and micro-business grants where these items were most needed.
We are also in discussions with Anglicare in Papua New Guinea, as that country witnesses an increasing number of deaths from COVID-19 amid scarce availability of testing and very low vaccine uptake. It is hoped that in 2022 some of AID’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund will be used by Anglicare to fill some stark gaps in responses to the pandemic in Papua New Guinea.
In 2022 we hope to raise for this project:
