ADM is delighted to announce the recipients of over $50,000 in small grants for programs to support refugees in their local communities.
Grants have been awarded to eight Anglican churches in the greater Sydney Diocese, with sums ranging from $1,300 to $16,000. The grants form part of the Syrian Iraqi Refugee Response, led by Anglicare in collaboration with four other Anglican agencies, including ADM. Churches will use the grants to help run English classes and playgroups, provide accommodation and employment support, and even to help run an Arabic church service.
Margo Leach, Director of Mercy & Justice Ministries at ADM, said: “We are thrilled to provide funding to these churches, enabling them to help meet the needs of refugees in their communities. Through these grants, we hope these churches will lead the way in welcoming, supporting and demonstrating the love of Christ to refugees who have fled Syria, Iraq and other nations in conflict.”
