The Alliance's visit to Zambia, highlighted in this news story and report, revealed the pressing needs of people with disabilities affected by natural or conflict related emergencies.  

The Church is called to follow in the footsteps of Christ, responding to human need by loving service, and  the Anglican Alliance was mandated by its global consultations to put this mark of mission into practice in a programme to support churches providing support for refugees and displaced people who are affected by emergencies.

To fund the launch of this groundbreaking work, the Alliance is holding a fundraising dinner at St Michael's Without in Bath on March 18th.  Kindly hosted by the Bishop of Bath and Wells, Rt Rev Peter Price, the event is open to all and will be attended by special guests including Most Revd Albert Chama, Archbishop of Central Africa.  Jenny Jones from the British Paralympics will also be in attendance, along with Susie Heart MBE, whose centre 'Neema Crafts' has transformed the lives of people with disabilities living in Tanzania.  

We look forward to seeing you there!
