PWS&D Supports Relief Efforts in Haiti

In the wake of the devastating Hurricane Matthew, over 1.4 million people in Haiti are urgently awaiting humanitarian aid. Coping with the sudden loss of family members, homes and livelihoods, impacted communities are also facing hunger and disease. PWS&D is responding to the situation by providing assistance in the form of food, emergency non-food items, shelter, clean water and sanitation services through our partners at the ACT Alliance
Help support relief efforts by making a donation to PWS&D through your church, mailing a cheque to the office, donating online or calling 1-800-619-7301 x291. Please mark all donations “Hurricane Matthew.” A bulletin insert to call your congregation together in prayer and support for Haiti is also available for download.
