Since it was founded by Rev Frank Byatt in 1949, the Christmas Bowl has brought together committed Australian Christians with dedicated local partners around the world, to give hope to people uprooted by conflict and disaster. When Rev Byatt sat down to his Christmas dinner all those years ago, he knew millions of people were starving in war-ravaged Europe. And he was compelled to offer help. He put a Bowl of Remembrance on his Christmas dinner table and asked his loved ones to place a gift in it to ‘share your good dinner with hungry children in other lands’. Frank couldn’t have foreseen how his simple act of compassion that evening would grow into the powerful Christmas Bowl tradition now celebrated in thousands of churches across Australia. And he couldn’t have known how much it would be needed in our world today. As we break bread with our loved ones, our thoughts will be with refugees and other displaced communities, who are going hungry this Christmas.

Mugisha* and her children fled to Kenya six years ago after conflict broke out in her home country of Congo.

Refugees like Mugisha were already struggling. But now the growing global food crisis, made worse by the war in Ukraine, has made it even harder to afford food, pushing millions to the brink of famine.

And with the number of people uprooted from their homes at record levels, lifesaving aid is being stretched too thin, leaving many refugees at breaking-point. 

“Food has helped us so much. You can’t live without eating, you can’t work without eating.” 

Your gift will help our local partners respond to this crisis by providing refugees with food, care and lifesaving support.
