Anglican Aid Abroad (AAA) began in Gin Gin in Queensland on St Andrew’s Day 1976. Supporters of AAA are therefore known as Missionaries of St Andrew. Those in that parish were concerned both that many charities incurred high rates of expenses, and that there was no Anglican overseas aid fund. Thus they have continued to ensure that all money raised for overseas appeals goes to these projects by all necessary administrative and fund-raising activities being done by volunteers . They partner with local churches overseas, especially with Anglican Religious Orders.
Their activities focus on human need in all its forms. Projects exist for refugee relief, children’s education, HIV/AIDS prevention, agricultural development, women’s literacy, medical work, women and children’s welfare, orphan care, drinking water infrastructure and many other charitable activities.
Particular current needs are to raise funds to help those homeless from the Haiti hurricane and the Fiji cyclone, to rebuild classrooms in Ghana and to provide AIDS medication for children in South Africa,
