Some History

 Since 1975 the Aid and Relief Committee has been active in informing member bodies of humanitarian needs in the region, as well seeking to educate the member bodies as to the holistic nature of the call of following Jesus to being towards and seek justice for the poor.  Churches have been encouraged to support aid, development and relief efforts both in their communities and amongst needful communities of other member bodies.
