Middle East Crisis Appeal

Conflicts in recent years across countries in the Middle East have led to widespread human suffering, destruction of infrastructure and the loss of thousands of civilian lives. According to the UN, in Iraq and Syria alone over 9 million people have been internally displaced and over 23 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance.

In response to this, ACCI Relief is partnering with Preemptive Love Coalition to provide humanitarian assistance to those affected in Iraq and Syria. This assistance is targeted at those who have been internally displaced, as well as those trying to remain or rebuild their homes within their own communities.

QLD & NSW Floods - Closed

Major floods have hit the New South Wales far north coast, with tens of thousands of people returning to their homes after being evacuated from Murwillumbah, Tumbulgum and Lismore, some of the main areas hit. Further north in Queensland, flooding continues to wreak havoc, with waters remaining high in the wake of ex-cyclone Debbie.

ACCI Missions has been in correspondence with Chaplaincy Australia as well as both the NSW and QLD ACC State Offices, who have reported a number of local ACC churches are in the process of responding to the needs within their communities of those affected by the flood waters.

ACCI Missions has launched a non-tax deductible appeal to raise funds to assist our ACC Churches to respond to this disaster.

Haiti Hurricane Appeal - Closed

ACCI Relief has launched an Humanitarian Relief Appeal to help those affected by Hurricane Matthew that hit Haiti in October 2016. The category 4 storm caused widespread devastation across the country, with the South-West of the country most affected. Over 1,000 people have lost their lives and over 1 million people are in need of assistance.

ACCI Relief's first response partners on the ground in Haiti have provided emergency assistance including supplies such as food, clean water, hygiene kits, blankets, tarps, water filters and solar lights. These much needed supplies have been provided to families and children in heavily affected areas.  

As we move into the recovery phase, ACCI Relief is partnering with Lumos to protect vulnerable children. In the aftermath of a disaster, children are at risk of being unnecessarily placed in institutional care, either through separation in the chaos of the disaster or through families losing their homes and livelihoods and being unable to care for their children. Furthermore, opportunistic child traffickers prey on vulnerable families in post-disaster contexts. This has been seen following many disasters, including the Haiti earthquake in 2010.

Our recovery efforts are therefore focused on identifying vulnerable families and developing support plans that will enable them to return home, stay together and prevent children from being placed in institutional care. This support includes the reconstruction of family homes that were totally destroyed, assistance accessing education and healthcare again, and income-generation opportunities for the parents. These efforts ensure that vulnerable children remain protected within the care of their family - where they belong.
