This Mission is an important aspect of our regular giving. Each month a different focus mission is chosen.
So far this year we have supported:
The Red Cross (Ebola epidemic), UNHCF (Syrian crisis), ABM (Lenten Appeal), Oxfam, Medicines Sans Frontier (Nepal earthquake), Brotherhood of St Lawrence, Indigenous Community Volunteers, Aussie Helpers (Qld drought), World Food Programme (Syrian refugee crisis) and Christian Blind Mission (River Blindness and Fistula Appeals).
Over a number of years, St John’s has developed a bond with the Karen refugees in Melbourne. It is our hope to be more directly involved, by supporting programmes within the refugee camps themselves, outside of Myanmar.
