Anglican Overseas Aid is a member of Act Alliance - one of the world’s largest coalitions of international relief and development agencies.
ACT Alliance delivers AUD $1.6 billion in aid each year to combat poverty, injustice, and human rights abuses, and also provide support in the wake of emergencies.
It is made up of 100 organisations from across the globe working in 125 countries with people of all faiths for positive and sustainable change. ACT Alliance members work to provide emergency food aid, shelter, water and sanitation facilities, and community-based development programs in some of the world’s poorest countries.
“The membership of the ACT Alliance is wide, in every part of the world. Almost everywhere we have churches, we have ACT,” says ACT Alliance General Secretary John Nduna.
“We are big and we make an impact on the lives of the poorest in societies around the world.”
The member in Australia are Anglican Overseas Aid; Act for Peace, the international aid agency of the National Council of Churches in Australia; and Australian Lutheran World Service, the overseas aid agency of the Lutheran Church of Australia.
