The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund
St. Clement's members are pleased to support the work of the PWRDF. As noted on its website:
The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) Le fonds du Primat pour le secours et le développement mondial is the Anglican Church of Canada’s agency for sustainable development, relief, refugees, and global justice. With the support of Anglican parishes across Canada, PWRDF makes financial and human resources available to support partners’ initiatives and to promote knowledgeable actions of solidarity at home and around the world.
PWRDF strives to be a part of the outreach ministry of every Canadian Anglican parish and an expression for all Anglicans of their baptismal covenant to strive for justice and peace and to respect the dignity of every human being.
The PWRDF has grown dramatically since its inception following the Springhill mine disaster in 1958, in which 75 men died following an underground mine explosion in Springhill, Nova Scotia. Responding to the needs of affected families eventually led to today's PWRDF, which works on both immediate relief and long-term solutions in partnerships with local community agencies throughout the world.
