Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Easter 2000. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries about the role of fathers in contemporary families and society. The issue describes "patriarchal societies where the position of the man as the head of the family in `non negotiable'," and Western societies where this is not the pattern. "Articles from Africa and India cite Biblical texts to underline the male head-ship of the family. They go on to reveal both the strengths and the weaknesses of such head-ship: when abused it can make the lives of women and children inescapably miserable. .... Throughout the Anglican Communion there is evidence of the dislocation of rapid change, often in part brought about by economic forces which undermine the role of men for example as `breadwinner' of the family."
Article notes that Canada, which is "the most water-rich nation on the Earth, can supply almost 122,000 cubic metres per person per year". "Even in a temperate climate, human beings require a litre of water each day, or 0.35 cubic meters per year, to sustain life".

Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Trinity 2007. 2007 marks 200 years since Britain abolished the Slave Trade. "The bicentenary provides an important opportunity not only to draw attention to the realities of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and its legacies, but also to focus attention on the fact that slavery is still a reality for millions of people worldwide. Today at least 12 million men, women and children are in slavery. They are forced to work through the threat or use of violence. They are denied freedom, dehumanised and treated as property or bought and sold. Slavery today takes many different forms. .... One of the most extensive forms of slavery today is bonded labour, which alone affects millions of people across South Asia" (pp. [27]-28).
Issue concludes with A Prayer for the enslaved and for their families" written by John Bradford which begins "God of freedom and concern for the oppressed / Hear our prayer for all tricked or taken from their families and heartlessly enslaved ...".
