AID's Pentecost Appeal 2022
See what the churches are doing in the world.
All through the COVID-19 lockdowns and when the pandemic was at its most dangerous, ABM-AID’s partner churches continued to work with their local communities to help them realise more of God’s love, hope and justice. Some church partners have additional challenges of working under conflict conditions. This Pentecost, we are asking you to help us show solidarity with our church partners so they may have funds to continue to serve their communities under extraordinary circumstances.
Women’s Empowerment and Healthy Children in Gaza
ABM-AID’s project in Gaza, aimed at both improving child nutrition and empowering women, implemented by our partner, the Ahli Hospital, has begun. And it’s already showing great results.

Vanuatu Villagers Very Happy with Improved Toilets
Ethel and Patrice (not their real names) have lived for many years in their village in Vanuatu’s Torba province. As they get older, they’ve been finding it increasingly difficult to manage with the traditional pit toilet. ABM-AID’s Vanuatu partner, ACOM-V, will bring their Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene project to their village soon. But the two women have already benefited from some new improved toilets that ACOM-V and their community were able to build from materials left-over from ACOM-V’s project in another village.

Women Being Empowered in Zambia
ABM-AID commissions independent evaluations of our projects once they have been completed in particular communities. Our Integrated Gender Project in four communities in Eastern Zambia has recently been evaluated, and the findings are very encouraging.
