The past year was one of significant change for Anglican Overseas Aid (AOA).
The organisation successfully underwent its five-yearly organisational re-accreditation by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
We were extremely grateful to both Bob Mitchell and Sue Riley who delayed their retirement announcements until after the accreditation was completed and provided for a smooth CEO transition. We then welcomed Ms Jo Knight as our new CEO.
Our dedicated field partners continued their amazing work, with Sri Lanka, Ethiopia, Mozambique and Kenya all facing additional challenges during the year.
Our supporters responded magnificently throughout the year. Despite the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, the faithfulness of our supporters enabled last year’s appeal donations to be exceeded, slightly offsetting reductions in other areas.
Finally, and most importantly, through the faithful commitment of our supporters and the tireless work of our partners, we were collectively able to positively impact or provide relief to more than a quarter of a million people.
