The strength of CWS is in the work it does to link people and churches with local partners working every day to end poverty and stop injustice. We continue to be inspired by their creativity and commitment in difficult economic and political environments where peace and security are in short supply.
CWS is grateful for the dedication and resourcefulness of our partners. The loss of income and livelihoods especially through the pandemic has pushed more people into poverty and contributed to increased levels of violence. CWS sent 59.2% of its income to partners overseas. It is grateful for a matching grant to assist refugees from Ukraine now in Poland from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Together we have responded to a record number of humanitarian appeals. The new International Programmes Working Group developed a new Pacific strategy to guide its work.
The CWS Board adopted a new three year strategy:
Our vision: Our world free of poverty and injustice.
Our mission: New Zealanders partnering with global communities to transform lives.
Our core value: Manaakitanga – we honour and respect others.
CWS thanks our partners, volunteers, supporters and partner churches for working together so more people have food, water, justice and dignity.
