New role for Careys

Published September 1, 2003

George Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, now known as Lord Carey of Clifton, and his wife, Lady Carey, have accepted posts as vice-presidents of the Christian relief and development agency Tearfund.Their visits to Christian communities in more than 90 countries during Lord Carey’s decade as Archbishop of Canterbury constantly brought them face to face with poverty and inequality. Lord Carey has described visits to Rwanda and Sudan as turning points in his life.”Through Tearfund we will be able to continue advocating for justice, peace and reconciliation in support of Tearfund’s local Christian partners who are achieving extraordinary results in their work alongside poor people in their communities,” said Lord Carey.In their new roles, the Careys will continue their long association with the war-torn country of Sudan, where an estimated two million people have died in fighting between forces in the north and south.
