Primate's World Relief and Development.

St. John's has had a long and active association with the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF).  This resource, a part of the Anglican Church of Canada, works with partners around the world and across Canada in providing relief after natural disasters, and development opportunities to communities that are in need.  

Recently we held a lawn sale to raise funds for PWRDF and for a Portage Scholarship.

Typically we host a PWRDF Sunday in the fall to learn more about the needs and how we can best respond.

This Canadian organization has been working on the ground to provide clean water to communities in Uganda.  St. John's has had a long association with ACTS, and is keen to know how we can help provide clean water and promote health.
