Severe Flooding in Australia

We are currently monitoring the flooding that struck Australia over the last week and have responded initially through our partners at Global Ministries and the Uniting Church in Australia. We will let you know once a targeted appeal is issued. In the meantime, consider a donation to our Response Fund, so that we can respond quickly to needs in Australia as they arise.
