South Asia: Earthquake Update #3
(revised #3 Update)
All donations received by The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund between October 8 and October 26, 2005, specifically earmarked “South Asia earthquake response” are eligible to be matched by the Government of Canada for an Earthquake Response Fund to support relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction in the devastated area. The funds generated by matching will be made available to support qualified relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction proposals submitted to CIDA by Canadian non-governmental organizations.
Church treasurers may receipt donations as usual, and should remit the amount to PWRDF as soon as possible. Please advise Jill Martin if you expect funds will not reach PWRDF by October 26.
