CWS Newsletter

The quarterly Christian World Service letter reports on the work of our partners, campaign news, what New Zealand support is helping to achieve in emergency situations and how our supporters in Aotearoa New Zealand are joining in the global struggle against poverty and injustice.


Latest issue:  Charlito is a happy Filipino farmer.  With help from CWS partner Developers he has replanted some of the crops he lost in Super Typhoon Haiyan three years ago.  Like Mary Jean featured in the Spring Story, he has worked hard, determined to help his family and community back on their feet.  In the Aklan province 3,061 homes with corrugated iron roofs are the visible sign of your help - now their homes are dry, families need to secure their future with better incomes. Developers is helping them plant crops, set up a farmers' market and train for the next natural disaster.

In South Sudan resilience is not an abstract idea but an everyday experience.  In July, Felix (15) and his brother ran for their lives when fighting broke out in their neighbourhood.  Now sheltering in a refugee camp in Uganda, they are finding support to keep them going.  In the Spring Story, there are no people waiting for aid, instead read stories of people Determined to Live.  You can also find out how we respond to emergencies and read our Summary Annual Review.

Support the Spring Appeal, so local partners can make sure people survive war and disaster.
