PWS&D Sunday

PWS&D Sunday – Feb. 4 is Presbyterian World Service and Development Sunday, the day each year when we highlight the work of PWS&D, our national church’s relief and development agency.  PWS&D provides funding for disaster relief as well as longer-term development projects, working through various ecumenical partners, including Action by Churches Together (“ACT” for short) and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.  Although PWS&D has a small staff at Church Offices in Toronto, it has no overseas staff; rather, it provides funding, through its partner agencies, for particular situations as they arise, or particular projects as funding is applied for.  Due to government regulations, PWS&D receives no funding from Presbyterians Sharing, but raises its funds separately, through both regular givings and special appeals.  Donations can be made to PWS&D at any time, using the “PWS&D” line on your offering envelope, or online at www.WeRespond.ca, using your credit card.  Information on projects that PWS&D is funding also can be found at www.WeRespond.ca.
