The Christmas Bowl program has been supporting Act for Peace's project partners around the world for more than 60 years. It is an important symbol for churches, schools and individuals all around Australia who work together to promote peace, justice and partnership.
The program started in 1949 when Rev. Frank Byatt placed an empty bowl on the dinner table during Christmas and asked guests to put in the bowl the cost of their meal, so that it could be distributed to people displaced from their homes due to World War II. Since then, the Christmas Bowl has raised over $100 million to help war-torn communities, thanks to our generous and committed supporters.
Act for Peace empowers war-torn communities to reduce poverty, protect refugees and prevent further conflict. Our project partners are currently assisting people in many of the world's worst conflict-affected areas, including Sudan, South Sudan, Somalia, Zimbabwe, the Middle East, Burma and Sri Lanka.
Act for Peace is a member of the global ACT Alliance which works in more than 140 countries worldwide, enabling us to respond immediately and effectively to emergency situations as they occur.
