Prologue
The report of the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund Committee was presented by Mr. E.G. Pullen with the assistance of the Reverend R. MacRae. The work of the Committee for 1973 was reviewed and copies of the financial statement made available for members of the National Executive Council.
During 1973 seventy grants were made to thirty countries and regions totalling $458,986. Further "in process" grants of $196,349 were committed during 1973 for payment during 1974.
Inter-Church Fund for International Development
Mr. Pullen introduced a working paper concerning the proposed fund which included specific recommendations leading to possible implementation. A working paper was first presented on June 6, 1973 to the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) after a series of consultations between the Inter-Church Consultative Committee on Development and Relief (ICCCDR) and CIDA which began February, 1973. The December 11, 1973 working paper represents the most recent working paper and it appears likely that CIDA will grant $800,000 to the first year of operation. Approval is now being sought in the five churches for the proposal. It was emphasized that the Fund does not replace the PWRDF but gives the PWRDF, and similar agencies of the other churches, an instrument that will be effective in relating to agencies of government responsible for development funds.

So far in 1970, the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund has allocated close to 600,000 dollars for victims of East Pakistan cyclone and tidal waves, Peruvian earthquakes, Rumanian floods and the Nigerian-Biafran crisis, as well as supporting a large number of development projects such as agricultural centres in developing countries and research into poverty.
The Fund was established ten years ago, primarily to coordinate disaster relief money. According to the Secretary of the Fund, the Rev. Robert D. MacRae, the fund has taken on the important role of assisting in rehabilitation and development following natural disasters and to date has spent $2.8 million collected through special appeals.
The PWRDF will give a $10,000 grant to the 2000 member Nishga (Indian) Tribal Council to assist in the financial costs of the Council's fight for aboriginal title to lands in the Nass River Valley, about 500 miles northwest of Vancouver.
The council's claim will go before the Supreme Court of Canada early in 1971.
This is the first time the Church has financially supported a court case.
The Rt. Rev. H.R. Hunt, Chairman of the Allocations Committee of the PWRDF has issued a year-end statement. He says: "Since its inception in 1959, the fund has responded through contributions from the members of the Anglican Church to various world needs in natural catastrophies, refugee and other disasters."
"The 1969 General Synod added a new dimension" says Bishop Hunt, "expanding it to include 'DEVELOPMENT' so that in its present title, PRIMATE'S WORLD RELIEF AND DEVELOPMENT FUND, it now serves all aspects of world need and opportunity in providing support to projects related to material necessities, education, human justice, social and cultural change."
Bishop Hunt says the anticipated allocations for the current year will approximate $600,000 and is evidence of the increasing concern of the Anglican Church to engage in all forms of ministry related to human need in its widest possible expression the world over.
