On Sunday, march 11th 2018 we (St. Stephen's Church, Lachine) held our PWRDF Fundraising lunch of soup and sandwiches. Our Rector's  warden made two kinds of soup: chicken noodle and Scotch broth. Others made sandwiches, cookies, and cake. We raised $376 for the Pikangikum Water Project which we'll mail to Toronto this week. 23 people participated.

About Us...

PWRDF is active in approximately 30 countries, with partners drawn from Anglican churches, ecumenical organizations, and community-based groups. PWRDF supports people-centred development that improves the quality of daily life for vulnerable populations, promotes self-reliance, and addresses root causes of poverty and injustice.

Our work is bound together in three strategic themes:

  • Weaving a Culture of Peace with Justice

  • Building a Moral Economy and

  • Accompanying Communities in Crisis.

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 national PWRDF has additional materials and information available here
