What Does Episcopal Relief & Development Do?
For over 75 years, Episcopal Relief & Development’s diverse, faithful community has responded compassionately to the suffering in the world. Together, we reach more than 3 million people annually in almost 40 countries. Their international partnerships address challenges in some of the most remote areas around the world, as well as in urban environments where extreme poverty persists. In many of these places, the Church is one of the few institutions people trust and turn to for help in the absence of government systems and services. Instead of imposing “one-size-fits-all” solutions, ERD supports local, long-term initiatives that address the effects of poverty and disaster. Through an Asset-Based Community Development methodology, they work with communities to identify and unlock their unique skills, gifts, talents and resources. Please join us and invest in Episcopal Relief & Development’s vital mission by giving meaningfully to our work to heal a hurting world.
