DIOCESAN DROUGHT RELIEF APPEAL

 Many in our region are suffering the effects of
on-going drought and the Diocese is responding to their needs in a variety of ways.

It will take years to recover, and droughts are becoming more common. We need to provide both immediate and long-term help, to ensure communities build a level of resilience for the future. To this end, the Diocese has set up an appeal, which will be managed by Centacare Bathurst. MORE>
