That this General Synod:

(a) noting the generous support given to drought relief in Papua New Guinea through the Anglican Board of
Mission – Australia, and by the Diocese of Ballarat and others through AngliCORD, encourages Anglican Board of
Mission – Australia to continue to contribute to drought relief as needed, and to work towards the provision of adequate water supply systems in the remote areas of Papua New Guinea, and calls upon the members of this
Church to continue to support these projects; and,

(b) asks that the President of this General Synod conveys to the Primate of the Anglican Church of Papua New
Guinea the prayerful concern of this church for our brothers and sisters in Papua New Guinea as they work for peace, justice and dignity for all people in their nation; assuring the Primate of the continuing commitment of this Church to the Anglican Church in Papua New Guinea as initiatives are taken to proclaim the Gospel by word and deed.
