While we know how you walk your journey of faith is a personal one; there are so many ways that you can live your faith through action.
Here are just some of the ways in which you can help us at Asian Aid turn our faith into action and help some of the world’s most vulnerable women and children in India, Nepal and Bangladesh.
PRAY WITH US AND FOR THE WORK WE DO
At Asian Aid we believe in the power of prayer; that is because God is the defender of those most vulnerable; His love plays is essential in the work we do. Our Christian response to fighting the injustice we see in the world around us is to lift our voices in prayer. We know this makes a difference.
Sometimes it is hard to know what to include in your daily prayers so please feel free to download our weekly Prayer Guide (coming soon) and include the work we do on your behalf in your prayers.
SPEAK UP AGAINST INJUSTICE
We support ADRA’s stance on speaking up for fairness and generosity.
We at Asian Aid believe that as a faith-based charity and a Supporting Ministry it is important to speak out in support of those most vulnerable.
In response to further cuts in overseas aid, our Adventist leaders have spoken out, encouraging church members to advocate for a fairer and more generous approach. Here is the link to the statement by ADRA. We encourage you to write to your local politician and become an aid advocate.
TAKE PART IN A FUNDRAISING INITIATIVE
We always encourage supporters to create fun events to support Asian Aid. We have now teamed up with GoFundraise to make it easier for you to share your fundraising journey with friends and family. Here is the link to our GoFundraise to help you on your journey.
Ask friends and family to sponsor an amount per goals kicked in the football season. It’s a great way to share the message of hope and understanding while getting the kid’s involved. It’s fun and easy, just register your soccer team now and help us to Kick it to Poverty

Creating a Will is one of the most important things you can do. A Will gives you the choice of leaving a lasting legacy to your family and loved ones, and to causes you care about most. Remembering the work we do in your Will has the power to create a legacy for life.
If you would like to receive further information or would like to have a confidential chat please contact Kerryn either at the office or via email.
IN LOVING MEMORY
The death of a family member is one of life’s most painful episodes. Those in mourning need support and most of us are anxious to find some way to comfort them. One of the ways to express sympathy and compassion, as well as respect for the deceased, is by sending flowers.
Occasionally, the obituary announcement includes the phrase “In Lieu Of Flowers” and we are always grateful when families want to support Asian Aid during this time. We believe every person is unique and work the family to ensure the family have all the support they need. If you would like information please contact Sue at the office or via email
