WCC–CCA joint Asia Regional Consultation urges churches to deepen accompaniment amidst COVID-19 pandemic 

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause serious concern. Vaccine inequity, increasing trends of gender-based violence, injustices against indigenous peoples, and insecurities among the youth are all major issues that were discussed at the 4 June WCC–CCA joint Asia Regional Consultation in Asia.

The Consultation held on 4 June 2021 focused on the theme ‘Overcoming Challenges of Inequality in Asia: Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace (PJP) in the context of the COVID-19 Pandemic’  was organised to identify challenges caused due to the surge of the coronavirus

“Churches in Asia must commit with one heart and mind our solidarity for those who are suffering, and move towards more practical ways of living out justice and peace. We must continue to bring hope, faith, and solidarity in fellowship around the world,” Rev. Dr Sang Chang, the WCC President for Asia.

  “Although the inequity that persists in many forms is worrying and of great concern, we must continue to preserve our hope and move forward.” Dr Mathews George Chunakara said.

Dr Chunakara also opined, "Let us strengthen our collaborations and accompaniment at every level...as we move forward towards recovering and rebuilding from the worst effects of the global pandemic,”.
