Anglican Church initiatives make a difference globally
(NC) Some of the lesser known relief organizations are also doing exceptional, life-saving work.
For example, the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) is the Anglican Church of Canada's official relief and development agency. With the support of Anglican parishes and dioceses across Canada, PWRDF makes financial and human resources available to support partners' initiatives and to promote involvement at home and around the world. PWRDF strives to be a part of the outreach ministry of every Canadian Anglican parish, and serves as a reminder that all Anglicans strive for justice and peace, and respect the dignity of every human being.
The Most Reverend Fred Hiltz is the 13th Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada and is president of PWRDF's Board of Directors. As Primate, Archbishop Hiltz has dedicated himself to supporting ministry on the ground, and to educating Anglicans and Canadians about the fund's initiatives. Executive director Adele Finney leads the staff team in implementing PWRDF's strategic plan and mission. More information is available online at www.pwrdf.org.
