The following letter excerpts were received this week from Will Postma, Executive director, PWRDF:
Dear friends in Christ,
‘On October 23, 1958, a devastating mine disaster occurred in Springhill, Nova Scotia. Anglicans in Canada responded quickly and overwhelmingly, joining together as a Church to offer prayer, support and funds. Sixty years later, volunteers and donors are still supporting PWRDF’s work, living out their Baptismal covenant to seek a truly just, healthy and peaceful world.
It all starts in the pews and parish halls. I am grateful for the many prayer breakfasts, pancake suppers and talent shows; the tireless efforts of Anglican Church Women and Outreach Committees and the enthusiasm of youth groups and Sunday Schools across Canada who are all engaged our work.’
…The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) is the Anglican Church of Canada’s agency for sustainable development and relief. Through the support of Anglican parishes across Canada, PWRDF makes financial and human resources available to partners around the world working to improve health, food security and livelihoods for vulnerable people. https://pwrdf.org/.
PWRDF is celebrating 60 years of commitment and connection. It has created the e-book ‘People, Partners and Progress: 60 Stories for 60 Years’. To read or download the e-book, go to https://pwrdf.org/ .
