ACOM DISASTER COMMITTEE has responded to Communities and Church Institutions affected by the recent bad weather in parts of Guadalcanal and Honiara.

The reliefs supplies are mainly bags of rice which believed can sustain these communities and institutions while easily going back to their normal gardening activities. 

Information gathered shows that the receiving communities and institutions are not only Anglican members and ACOM through her Disaster Committee is happy to give out what it can give to the victims of the recent bad weather. 

The recipient communities include; Marasa Inland and coastal villages and Kolina in Weather Coats Areas, Selwyn College, BPTC Kohimara, Religious Communities (MBH, CSC, CSM and SSF).

ACoM has a Sunday in its Lectionary set aside purposely for Disaster Sunday which church offerings in all dioceses in Solomon Islands and in Vanuatu will go towards the ACoM Disaster Funds to assist during such situations.

ACOM acknowledges our donor partners – Melanesian Mission Trust Board, Anglican Overseas Aid, Australia Board of Mission, dioceses, business houses, families and individuals who have made donations or offerings towards the ACOM DISASTER APPEAL.

The church is again appealing to all for offering or donations during the ACOM Disaster Sunday.

Disaster happens anywhere at any time, so let’s be on alert at all times.
