Anglican Overseas Aid is an overseas relief and development agency of the Anglican Church of Australia. Our vision, inspired by the Christian Gospel, is for a peaceful, just and sustainable world for all. Find out more about our vision, purpose and strategic goals.

For more than 30 years we have been supporting communities around the world to lift themselves out of poverty regardless of race, religion, sexuality, gender, age or social standing within a community.

To achieve our vision, we support the ongoing development work of our partners around the world, we respond to disasters and emergencies, and we work with coalitions and alliances to change the global structures that contribute to poverty and injustice.

Anglican Overseas Aid responds to emergencies around the world. When human and natural disasters strike, the compassion and generosity of our donors allows us to help.

We respond either by supporting our partners if they work in the affected areas, or we join with the ACT Alliance, a global coalition of more than 140 Christian agencies, or CAN DO or the Emergency Action Alliance, to support a rapid and effective response.

Find out more about our work responding to emergencies, past emergency responses, and our Rapid Response Emergency Fund.
