Anglicans respond strongly to need

Burma and China Relief

Anglican parishes and individuals are responding overwhelmingly to the devastation in Burma and in China in the wake of much-publicized disasters that hit those countries.

The finance department at The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund says it is trying to keep up with stacks of mail, telephone donations and online donations. As of June 8, more than $93,000 has come in from parishes and individuals. About $72,000 has been pledged to disaster relief in Burma and about $21,000 for China.
The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) is matching personal donations given to these two areas. CIDA will match all personal donations given to Burma until June 13 and will match all donations to the China effort until June 23.

PWRDF staff continue to gladly receive donations by mail, over the phone or through online donations at www.pwrdf.org .
