We have seen the departure and arrival of two staff members so far this year.
Tribute to Susan
After 4 years of faithful service to Mukti Australia, our beloved Susan Stafford has stepped down from her role of Projects Officer. Susan has been instrumental in overseeing and managing the development projects with and working alongside our overseas partners and was also a key staff member in leading the team at Mukti Australia during her time as Office Manager. Her contributions and her insightfulness have been invaluable and she will surely be missed by all of us.
Susan plans to continue fundraising for Mukti Australia in her town as a volunteer and enjoy some well-earned rest. Stay in touch and stay well, Susan!
Winston Wan comes to us with a background in local church administration, banking, and corporate finance. His most recent role was as Business Operations Director for Clayton Church of Christ. As such, he was part of the Executive Team and department head in charge of all areas of business operations, including risk & compliance, process improvement, financial management, budgeting, facility management, strategic cost management, IT systems and day-to-day operations. We look forward to seeing how God will use him here at Mukti Australia!
New National Director!
“Having spent two decades training churches on mission I have been praying about a new role that champions biblical justice. Mukti Australia is a beautiful aid and development organisation that champions women and children and I feel I can give my life to it. What an incredible heritage and history that Mukti Australia has. I am humbled to help Mukti move in its next chapter built on its fantastic past.”

Becoming innovative in times of crisis
by Lorraine Francis,
Mission Director, PRMM
Our efforts to transform waste into valuable goods continues as we continually brainstorm new ways to utilize junk and old materials. Santosh Sable has earnt the nickname “Mr. Fix,” as he comes up with clever new inventions. His latest design is a trolley for the oxygen cylinder which greatly assists the hospital staff. He has also created a multi-purpose trolley out of old bicycles that is being used to distribute goods around the yard.
Emergency Response COVID-19

COO, Wings of Hope
WINGS OF HOPE is extremely grateful to you for the support we have received throughout the COVID-19 crisis. With your support, we have reached out to over 150 underprivileged families in Hatton and the suburbs of Colombo – mainly families of daily-wage earners who cannot work at home are among the worst affected by the loss of their employment. There is still more to be done! As an organization dedicated to assist communities in need at times such as this, Wings is doing its very best to make essential groceries available to families in and also out of our project. Thank you for your continued prayers for our nation, and for your continued financial support which enables us to bring relief to these families in small ways.
Who we are
In Sanskrit, the word ‘mukti’ means freedom, liberation and salvation.
The name ‘mukti’ reflects the origins of our work which began in India over a century ago. Today, we partner with organisations in both India and Sri Lanka to empower disadvantaged children and women.
Mukti Australia is a Christian organisation seeking to change lives through a range of development initiatives that demonstrate, in a practical way, the love of Jesus Christ.
