Vaccine Equity Fund

The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) has launched a new Vaccine Equity Fund to contribute to the worldwide vaccination effort related to COVID-19. The Fund was developed in partnership with the Primate, Archbishop Linda Nicholls, who recently wrote about its importance after receiving her own vaccination.  Read more about PWRDF's Vaccine Equity Fund and donate here.

Supporting India

PWRDF is also now accepting donations to support India as it struggles to respond to a devastating COVID-19 outbreak. While Canada continues to face its own challenges and grief over COVID-19, the images and stories of mass deaths, black-market oxygen tanks, and parking lot crematoria are especially heartbreaking. Development partners in the region are working night and day to provide emergency services and relief, including the Church’s Auxiliary for Social Action (CASA). Read more and donate here.
