Why we need your help
Climate change is a reality for the people of Melanesia. Many people are having to abandon their homes, villages and islands due to increasing sea levels, flooding, unpredictable weather patterns and increased air temperatures causing crop failures.
Many communities are struggling to adapt to these changes, with limited relocation options, resources or support. In the Solomon Islands, the Anglican Church of Melanesia is working to assist communities to move to safer areas, while helping them to maintain and uphold their distinctive culture and way of life.
As a region with a relatively low carbon footprint, Melanesia seems to be paying a heavy price for rest of the world’s over development and wastefulness. MMUK is campaigning for Climate Justice for the people of Melanesia, and raising funds to support those for whom it is too late.
This appeal will raise money to enable the Anglican Church to plan and prepare, and then to support relocated communities.
Updates on our campaign can be found on Facebook, Twitter and on our website www.mmuk.net/climatejustice.
