You can make a real difference to poor communities worldwide by donating to this OWG appeal.

 For many years our Parish has supported communities in Bolivia, India, Tanzania and Guyana. Today, our brothers and sisters in these places are experiencing severe hardships as they continue to struggle to manage the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and will be severely affected by disruption to food supply consequent on the Ukraine conflict. These communities were very poor even before the war and pandemic, and their situation has worsened over the past few months. People are afraid. Their societies do not have infrastructure such as the NHS and government assistance to help them.

Each year we also support a different need in Malvern, and this year we have been helping some schools struggling to support those of their children severely affected by Covid, fleeing from Ukraine and other issues.

The difference in our respective situations brings to the fore the inequalities that exist in our global human family. Jesus felt – and feels – passionately about such inequalities. He teaches us that the Kingdom is here and that we will make it fully present when we live in the spirit of love and respect.

Let us go to the Acts of the Apostles to see how the first Christians lived:

“All the believers were one in heart and in mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions were his own, but they shared everything they had. There were no needy persons among them. From time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need.”  (Acts 4 vv32-36.)

In our Parish we seek to be united with other Christian communities on different continents. We have learnt through their example how to trust in God and also to become more aware how some of our brothers and sisters live in poorer parts of the world. We, in our turn, have always responded to their needs by supporting them with our prayer, interest and financial help.
