PWRDF we are always welcome to support the ongoing work of the PWRDF with donations in our monthly blue envelopes. 

Here is information on what is being done by the PWRDF to help victims of Hurricane Matthew - How can you help?Over 1.4 million people in Haiti and 175,000 in Cuba have been affected by Hurricane Matthew. PWRDF has sent $40,000 for relief work in Haiti and a further $20,000 for relief work in Cuba through the ACT Alliance, whose members were active in both countries long before the hurricane and are there for the long term.

The major needs in Haiti are shelter, water, sanitation, hygiene and food.  Cholera and the loss of crops and livelihoods are of particular concern. 

In Cuba, the focus is on providing food security, water and sanitation, shelter and psychosocial support. Food for 30 days will be provided, as well as tools and seeds to help farmers to replant the crops that were destroyed.

Please support PWRDF’s response to this ongoing emergency!
