The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), the relief and development arm of the Anglican Church of Canada, supports school feeding programs in 33 schools in Haiti, which is still recovering from the devastating January 2010 earthquake.
PWRDF also supports the building of transitional shelters in St. Matthieu (so far, 70 homes have been constructed) and an urban agricultural pilot project involving 300 families.
Naba Gurung, PWRDF humanitarian response co-ordinator, and Simon Chambers, PWRDF communications coordinator, visited PWRDF projects in Haiti last December. Chambers posted photos and stories from that trip at http://pwrdfblog.livejournal.com.
To date, Anglicans in Canada have donated a total of $2.34 million toward ongoing relief and development work in the ravaged island nation.
PWRDF continues to accept donations for Haiti. For more information, contact Jennifer Brown, (416) 924-9192 ext. 355; 1-866-308-7973. By mail, cheques should be payable to “PWRDF,” marked “Haiti Relief/Reconstruction,” and sent to The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund, Anglican Church of Canada, 80 Hayden St., Toronto, M4Y 3G2.
