Mothers Day Prayer Appeal 2016

The Australian Churches Refugee Taskforce is calling you to join a National Day of Prayer on Mother’s Day, the 8th of May, for mothers of people who are in detention. Find out more, and register your interest.

As we celebrate and spoil our own mothers this Sunday, let’s pause together to pray for mothers of people who are in detention, particularly people on Manus Island at this time of great uncertainty. Most of us know how worried and anxious our mums can get! Let's also remember mothers who themselves are in detention.

Mothers and families – who may be across the other side of the world – are the forgotten victims of detention. The uncertainty of knowing when your child will we be free, or safe, or healthy is a debilitating burden to bear.
