PWRDF HURON (Formerly known as the HURON HUNGER FUND)
The PWRDF HURON Committee is given the responsibility in the Diocese of Huron to raise awareness, to provide education and to raise funds for the ongoing work of the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF).
PWRDF is the ministry of Canadian Anglicans engaging in development work, responding to emergencies, protecting refugees and educating and advocating for change.
“Inspired by the vision
of a spirit-filled community of hope,
PWRDF walks together with partners
in Canada and overseas
to share in the creation
of a more just and peaceful world”.
Through individual donations, the annual Bishop’s Fall Appeal, a PWRDF Huron Fund Sunday in May and the generosity and energy of artists such as the Three Cantors and Angus Sinclair, Rachel Snow and Marque Smith, the Diocese of Huron has been a leader in the Canadian Church in contributing to this work.
OUR PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS
