GOOD NEWS STORIES…
They made it!
Congratulations on a job well done to all of you at PWRDF Montreal
They reached their $10,000 goal at the PWRDF/MUHC Maternal Health Symposium and thanks to a generous matching-donor, this amount will be doubled!!!!
Our Diocesan Water Walk project to support clean drinking water for Pikangikum was featured in the PWRDF’s quarterly newsletter, Under the Sun! (Scroll down to see some pictures from the Water Walk)
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.

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.
