40 hour famine.png

Take a stand and partner with World Vision to bring life changing help to children of the South Sudan.  Last year Karori Anglican raised over $1,500 doing the famine, this year we are going to top that!

You don't have to give up food, famines of all types are possible (including giving up talking, technology, living out of a backpack, food rations...) and its heaps of fun when you do it with friends. 

Want to be part of this years famine?  See either your GodZone, or Youth leader or Kate Harvey-Green with any questions or to get a pack.  The easiest way is to head online and set up your profile....at famine.org.nz.  Remember to join the Karori Anglican Team so we can work together to raise heaps together!

Love Their Heads
Children lose proportionally more heat through their heads therefore hats are more important to children.  So KAC will be knitting beanies for the kids at Karori West School to keep them warm this winter. 
We will also be sewing hooded vests from upcycled blankets.  Do you have any colourful blankets that you no longer use?  We can put them to a new purpose to keep kids warm that need our support.  Contact Wendy
