Episcopal Relief and Development

Established as The Presiding Bishop’s Fund for World Relief, this is the collective response of the Episcopal Church to help people in need in the US and around the world. Since its inception in 1940, to assist refugees fleeing war in Europe, this organization has helped people in 100 countries on five continents. More than half of the disaster assistance provided has gone to emergencies right here in the U.S. Their “Project for Hope” are as numerous as they are varied in nature. Contributions go toward the purchase of everything from medical care to seed and fertilizer to sewing machines, sheep and goats. For further information, you are encouraged to check the organization’s web site at www.er-d.org.
