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 are joining in the global struggle against poverty and injustice.

Latest issue:  Sangeetha has spent most of her life in the forest.  She depends on its rich resources to provide a living for her family.  These resources are rapidly shrinking as others take from the forest.  Sangeetha knows it cannot support her children and she is determined they have an education, starting with Jivitha, the oldest. The Women Development Resource Centre is helping them Create a New Path for the Future on their own terms.  In Tonga, Ama Takiloa is assisting families to repair rainwater tanks and reestablish gardens lost in Cyclone Gita.

Read the Winter Story to find how partners are helping vulnerable people find a new path for the future.  Please support our Winter Appeal.
