Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF): PWRDF’s is the Canadian Anglican response for emergency relief, refugees, development and justice. And it’s making a difference in the world. Its guiding principle is to listen and learn from partners in its development work. Donations can be made through the local parish or direct debit can be set up through the PWRDF website.

Have someone on your Christmas list who “has everything” and is hard to shop
for? PWRDF has an answer— “World of Gifts”. You can donate in the person’s
name. Buy a goat, chickens, help with providing safe birthing, support displaced
persons, are some of the many options. Visit giving.anglican.ca/worldofgifts.
This type of donation also helps children to feel part of helping people around
the world. The PWRDF World of Gifts site gives you the country your donation
will be going to once you and your children decide what you want to donate.
Find the country in an atlas or online to find out more about the country
and its needs. A favourite donation for children is a goat for a family.
A goat will provide nourishment and a means of earning money for the family
through breeding. Take a moment to visit the site for all the possibilities
your donation could provide. Visit giving.anglican.ca/worldofgifts.
PWRDF also provides an Advent Reflection which you can download or you can
subscribe to a daily devotional for Advent by providing your email address.
