Anglican Missions is launching an emergency appeal in the wake of Cyclone Winston. We are asking for your support to provide disaster relief to our brothers and sisters in the Pacific who have been affected.
Gusts reached speeds of up to 325km per hour, causing 12m high waves and making this the most powerful cyclone to hit the Southern Hemisphere. Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama has declared an official state of emergency for 30 days.
Reverend Mike Hawke of Anglican Missions is currently in Labasa, Fiji and has reported that spirits remain high, although communications are severely compromised with tele and radio networks down. Our contacts with the Diocese of Polynesia will continue to provide reports as they are able and we will update accordingly.
Please remember the people within the Diocese of Polynesia in your prayers and if you are able to donate go to our website for information of how to do so: http://www.angmissions.org.nz/?sid=667
We thank you sincerely for your generosity during this unfortunate time.
Canon Robert Kereopa
Anglican Missions Board
