PWRDF is saddened to see the devastation and destruction wrought by Hurricane Fiona on so many communities in Eastern Canada. From the Magdalen Islands in Quebec to Port aux Basques, N.L., the stories of loss and survival are cause for prayer.
PWRDF is in contact with our Diocesan Representatives and other key volunteers in the affected areas to learn the extent of the damage. Please consider donating to PWRDF to support these communities. We are assessing the best ways to channel your gifts to support those in the highest need in ways that do not duplicate support being offered by other agencies or provincial or federal governments.
Over the past years, PWRDF has worked closely with Dioceses, parishes and organizations responding to local emergencies, most recently the fires and floods in British Columbia, and the pandemic in Indigenous communities in northern Ontario and northern Manitoba.
How you can help
Please pray for the safety and recovery of people living in the affected communities. You may also give here or at pwrdf.org/give-today and choose Hurricane Fiona. You may also call to donate at 1-866-308-7973 or mail your cheque to PWRDF, 80 Hayden Street, 3rd floor, Toronto, ON, M4Y 3G2.
