Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Easter 1998. "Most of the articles in this newsletter -- and there has not been enough space to include all we have received -- point out that although attitudes to disability are changing, more needs to be done. With the example of our Lord, who embraced the disabled of his society, the Church has a clear path to follow". A series of short reports from different regions and countries.
The short report from Canada (p. 31) discusses the death of Tracy Latimer, at the hands of her father, Robert Latimer, and the implications for the debates about the disabled and euthanasia. Written by Eric Beresford.

Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Advent 2001. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries about family breakdown. "The articles in this newsletter tell of increased marriage and relationship breakdown, more children on the streets, more despair fuelling alcohol and drug abuse. Many refer to the root causes of poverty, the AIDS pandemic, and, of course, war ... But the picture is not all bleak. An article from Canada points out that a marriage breakdown may, in some cases, represent a new start, free from hidden violence and abuse. Many of the articles tell of vigorous efforts being made by churches and projects from all over the Anglican Communion to help the casualties of family breakdown".

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".

"This newsletter seeks to give visibility to these forgotten victims and to encourage the Anglican Church and other Christians to further develop ministries to prisoners and their families.

Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Trinity 1999. A series of 11 short reports from different regions and countries describing the churches' response to the problem of prostitution. "Prostitution has a long history, and the attitude of the Church has ranged from this acceptance of `the oldest profession' as a necessary evil, to outright condemnation. As we approach the third millennium, there seems little doubt that both prostitution and trafficking in women and children are one the increase. It is a global problem. Political and economic pressures are fuelling the sex trade, sometimes in new areas". "The most vulnerable and abused of all are the children. As the articles from individuals and organisations working in Thailand, the Philippines, Africa, Hong Kong and South America make clear, child prostitution is flourishing in many countries. Increasing numbers of boys and young men are being involved, as well as girls and young women" (p. [19]).

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 ...".

Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for December 2007. "The future of cities depends on the future of young people. In particular, it depends on what policy makers can do to equip young people to break the cycle of poverty. This in turn depends on involving young people in the decisions that affect them. Over half the global population now live in towns and cities. Cities with over 10 million people are becoming commonplace. Elsewhere smaller settlements are exploding with rural migrants". "In many countries, the majority of children will live in urban slums. Increasingly the urban dream is vanishing. The possibility of moving beyond one's parents' poverty disappears". "Families are faced with many pressures and dilemmas -- which children to educate, which to send to live and work with relatives, decisions often made on the basis of gender". "In the midst of our cities are stories of hope, of risks taken in faith. When we work with families, children and young people we work with the cities of the future, with them we often glimpse a different city -- one of possibility, of energy and safe spaces. We need to make those visions central to our presence and witness in the cities of the 21st century". After a series of stories about particular initiatives in different countries, the section ends with a prayer that begins: "O God, give us vision for our cities, that they may be cities of justice, cities of prosperity and cities of peace, in which vice and poverty cease to fester, children play in the streets in safety and the elderly walk without fear". IAFN Newsletter divided into sections: Editorial / Andrew Davey -- Kenya: Kibera Slum, Nairobi / Colin Smith -- Zambia: Chawama Compound, Lusaka / Emmanuel Chikoya -- Rwanda: Kigali City / Josephine Rwaje -- Brazil: Salvador / Stephen Taylor and Bruno Almeida -- Belize City / Cecile Reyes -- India: Delhi / Monodeep Daniel -- Japan: Nagoya (The fourth largest city in Japan) / Kei Ikezumi and Claire Gelder -- Australia: City of Newcastle / Fergus King -- Italy: City of Rome / Michael L.

An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries about "the importance of water both as a source of life and a Christian symbol .... in many parts of the world, water is a matter of hard labour and survival ... It should particularly concern Christians. `Whenever there are water shortages, accessibility problems, or pollution within a country, it is the poor who suffer most.' Joanne Green, Public Policy officer, Tearfund."
