|CNEF (Vaux sur seine)
We also have an active link with a parish in Morondava, Madagascar with which we maintain communications for mutual prayer support. We have a broader link with the Diocese of Toliara in Madagascar, through Bishop Samitiana and his wife Neny Holy. The diocese was formerly led by Bishop Todd and Rev. Patsy McGregor, who visited us in 2017 and 2018. Under the Bishops’ leadership, the Anglican diocese has grown to around a hundred churches in the past decades where previously there were none, and one challenge is now to deepen the faith of those in this young diocese. The small local women’s enterprise which Maggie Simmons and Sue Babbs helped start in Toliara in 2016, and other projects, help the Diocese provide employment and sustain the community in times of hardship . See http://dioceseoftoliara.org/ and http://www.peoplereaching.org/. In the past few years we gave a donations for a wall to enclose the church in Sakahara, Madagascar, where the pastor had been shot due to local unrest. That church has recently been led by the first ordained woman priest in Madagascar, Rev. Nolavy.
You can also help support a child in Madagascar through the Toliara Child Sponsorship programme. Maggie has made a presentation for the church Here. See also https://dioceseoftoliara.org/en/what-we-do/education/toliara-child-sponsorship/
In addition, the church supports a child in the Philippines, Kenje, via SEL https://www.selfrance.org/parrainage/presentation/
