All we Can News: Nov 2018

Next year All We Can (AWC) will work more closely with the World Church Relationships team (WCR) to provide Methodist global partner churches with more comprehensive support and resources. WCR has partnership co-ordinators for Africa, The Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Europe, and co-operation with AWC will strengthen Methodist global churches for mission and development. All We Can will continue to provide relief and development, including its successful work with other NGO’s, in addition to supporting WCR. This new initiative is not a merger between WCR and AWC – donations to World Church and All We Can will continue to be channelled separately to each organisation.

An urgent Appeal has been launched by the Methodist Church, and All We Can in the aftermath of the recent devastating earthquake and tsunami in Sulawesi, Indonesia. The city of Palu was engulfed, and many neighbouring towns and villages are cut off by debris and landslides. The death toll could be in thousands, and survivors who have lost everything are in desperate need of water, food, shelter, and access to medical care. Thousands of people are so affected, and Laura Cook (AWC Humanitarian Aid Co-ordinator) urges people to give generously, so that we can make a rapid response.

All We Can not only provides relief in a crisis, but also works with some of the world’s poorest communities in development projects to help transform the lives of these people. In the Extraordinary Christmas Appeal, AWC has catalogues of Extraordinary Gifts, the proceeds of which, together with donations to the Christmas Appeal, can help some of the world’s poorest communities. To help with fund raising, Catalogues, Gift Aid Envelopes Posters, a Film, and Worship Resources may be ordered by calling 020 7467 5132, or e-mailing info@allwecan.org.uk You may also like to invite an AWC speaker to a service or event, at the above contact number.

Many thanks to all who continue to support the work and vision of All We Can, and new supporters are very welcome
