That this General Synod
1. Affirm the Development Goal of the United Nations for each developed country to contribute 0.7% of its gross national product to Official Development Assistance (ODA) in developing countries.
2. Request the General Secretary to write to the Government of Canada by June 30, 2004, urging it to act on the 0.7% Development Goal, using the proposal of the Canadian Council of International Cooperation for reaching this goal by 2015:
- To increase foreign aid by 12% annually between 2009 -- an additional $750 million over the next three years to increases already planned
- To increase foreign aid by 15% between 2009-2015.
3. Affirm the challenge of the 1998 Lambeth Conference to dioceses and provinces of the Anglican Communion to provide 0.7% of their own resources to fight global poverty.
4. Request the Primate
- to encourage Anglicans to give their generous support to the PWRDF and Anglican Appeal, which together with the Partnerships budget of General Synod, represent the Anglican Church of Canada's financial commitment to supporting international development programs, fighting poverty, and strengthening international and intra-Anglican partnerships.
- to report to the Anglican Communion by August 31, 2004, through the Task Team on Poverty and Trade, on the Anglican Church of Canada's contributions to development and poverty work to help give a complete picture of the Anglican Communion's efforts to achieve Millennium Development Goals.

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.

Famine-stricken peoples of India and Africa and earthquake victims in Turkey received a major portion of $200,724 contributed last year by Canadian Anglicans to the Primate's World Relief Fund.
Since the fund was established in 1960 a total of $1,422,358 has been disbursed through the World Council of Churches and other agencies for the alleviation of distress in the world's disaster areas.
Responding to an appeal by the Christian Council of India which has undertaken the emergency feeding of 1,000,000 persons daily, the Primate's fund made a grant of $35,000 in 1966. One phase of the council's plan involves the increasing of water supplies and another seeks to improve farming methods to prevent recurring famines.
An additional grant of $20,000 went to the Canada-Mysore project, an cooperative scheme in food technology in which the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, the Canadian Hunger Foundation and India's Technological Research Institute are among the participants. The total disbursement of $62,621 in India included also $5,000 to aid rehabilitation work following the Madras cyclone and floods and $2,500 for tuberculosis control in the sub-continent.
Famine sufferers in Africa were helped to the extent of $10,000 while a similar grant was made to Turkey for housing victims of the severe earthquake in Eastern Anatolia.
Other grants included $19,000 for refugees in Kenya, Rwanda and the Sudan, while a total of $33,000 went for agricultural projects in Burma, Rhodesia, Tanzania, Tunisia, Greece, West Pakistan and Chile.
The Primate, Most Rev. Howard H. Clark, appeals to Anglicans to mark Centennial Year by making a substantial birthday gift to the world's needy people through the World Relief Fund.

A record $254,632 was contributed to the Primate's World Relief Fund of the Anglican Church of Canada during Centennial Year. Through the fund Canadians help to alleviate starvation and distress caused by disasters, assist refugees and homeless people, and give support to a variety of relief projects abroad.
Most Rev. Howard H. Clark, the Primate, expressed gratification at the achievement, at the same time announcing that the 1968 target had been set at $400,000. Last year's total compares with the previous high mark of $235,412, reached in 1960, the year the fund was established, and exceeded the 1966 figure by $53,908. The eight-year aggregate amounts to $1,676,988.
"Canada is one of the few countries that today are increasing their aid to under-developed countries," Archbishop Clark said. "But still it is not doing enough. And the Primate's World Relief Fund is not doing enough."
Speaking particularly of the need for food in India and other countries, he said: "The world is facing a crisis. So far, it is losing the battle with hunger. We are still producing too many people and not enough food."
Grants made by the fund last year amounted to more than $235,000. They included $33,500 for a variety of needs in Africa; $20,000 to drought-parched areas in India for projects designed to promote irrigation and better farming; $25,000 for Middle East refugees without distinction of nationality, religion or politics and $10,000 for the East Asian Christian Council's teams working among civilian war victims in Vietnam.
Most of the grants, made up of voluntary donations given over and above the regular church budget, go to relief projects sponsored by the Division of Inter-Church Aid of the Refugee and World Service of the World Council of Churches. Administrative costs average just over five percent annually.

Notes
The Rev. Geoffrey Monjesa, development officer for the diocese of Masasi, took a group of Canadian Anglicans to the water pump in Ndomoni in southern Tanzania. "Until the pump was installed at the end of January 2017, most of Ndomoni's 1,321 residents walked up to eight kilometres to the nearest village to get water, or relied on surface water from ponds, which required boiling. Now, because of a project funded by the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) as part of a nutrition and food security project (known locally as the Community Health Improvement Project, or CHIP, which came to a close in March 2017), this walk has been shortened to a little more than a kilometre. The Canadians are members of a PWRDF delegation that has come to the diocese of Masasi to learn more about All Mothers and Children Count (AMCC), a larger project that builds off work done during CHIP. Though AMCC is focused on maternal and newborn child health, Monjesa uses this trip to the borehole to show how interconnected different aspects of the development projects are: there is a vast web of factors that affect health, and water is one of the most essential".
"In May [2017], staff writer Andre Forget travelled to Tanzania with a delegation from the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund to visit projects supported by the Anglican Church of Canada. He files these stories and photos, the second of a three-part series".

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.

Notes
"An Anglican alliance among member provinces of the Anglican Communion is being proposed to 'better co-ordinate and strengthen' existing relief, development and advocacy activities of Anglicans worldwide". The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, convened a meeting of relief and development professionals in London in January 2009. "The meeting achieved consensus on 'the need to define and communicate and Anglican theological basis of understanding and practice of development that roots development firmly with God's mission as articulated in the Anglican Communion; and to communicate this throughout the communion, from parish level to international structures,' said Lambeth Palace in a statement". "Cheryl Curtis, director of the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund, said that the PWRDF board 'has not had a formal conversation' around the proposed alliance, where membership will be voluntary. "It would really be great for the alliance to exist,' she said, adding that the PWRDF would benefit from it. 'It would give us an opportunity to bring our excellence to the table and have it seen and recognized in the communion', she said." "Ms. Curtis was one of four participants who was asked by Archbishop Williams to present case studies of their organizations' successful programs."

Toronto, Dec. 14, 1984 -- For immediate release
The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) have announced that, as of this date Canadian Anglicans have contributed $425,000 for the drought crisis in Africa.
$325,000 of the total is specifically designated for immediate relief in Ethiopia, and other severely affected countries.
Ethiopia has been the focus of media attention and the majority of contributions, understandably, have been earmarked for relief there, reflecting the outpouring of concern.
PWRDF is acutely aware of the details of the African scene through its own staff and its close connections with the indigenous Churches in the area. It is realized that in addition to the millions affected in Ethiopia, there are another 6 to 7 million other Africans in desperate circumstances.
After assessing this information and that received in the latest telex messages, the PWRDF Allocations Committee has designated the following use of relief funds.
Ethiopia $237,000
Sahel Region* 50,000
Tanzania 25,000
Mozambique 20,000
Ghana 15,000
Angola 10,000
Zimbabwe 10,000
Rwanda 10,000
Kenya 5,000
Namibia 5,000
* (The Sahel Region includes seven countries, but special focus is on Chad, a country with a much smaller population than Ethiopia, but whose people are in as desperate a situation.)
The remaining $100,000 is designated for longer range development and rehabilitation projects in Africa. PWRDF is also seeking matching funds from CIDA through the newly formed Africa Emergency Aid, of which it is a member.
LONG TERM AID ESSENTIAL AS WELL AS RELIEF
The rains will come -- in fact, in some places they have begun !
It is essential that as soon as humanly possible aid be channelled to people where they live. If they are forced to move to relief centres there will be no one in their homelands, as the rains come, to plant crops which will alleviate the situation on a long-term basis.
As part of its regular work, PWRDF will continue to aid long term projects such as well digging, drought resistant seeds and agricultural supplies, improved agricultural skills, and diversified crops. Much more will be needed in the coming months and years.
ANGLICAN REPRESENTATIVE ON NEW CO-ORDINATING AGENCY
The Federal Government has made funds available for a new organization, African Emergency Aid (A.E.A.) formed to coordinate Non Governmental Organizations aid to Africa with that of the Government.
We are pleased that a member of the Diocese of Ottawa, Mr. John Maybee, a former Ambassador to India, has been chosen to sit on the eight-member Board.
PWRDF WORKS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH OTHER CHURCH AGENCIES AND INDIGENOUS CHURCHES
In March of this year the Geneva-based international church agencies, Catholic Relief Services, the Lutheran World Federation and the World Council of Churches formed a coordinating task force, the "Churches' Drought Action in Africa" (CDAA).
PWRDF relates to CDAA through the W.C.C. In Ethiopia, a coalition of voluntary agencies and churches called the Chrisitian Relief and Development Association (CRDA) coordinates the response by the voluntary sector.
Within the framework of these two mechanisms, PWRDF support is principally directed to the relief agency of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, a member of both the W.C.C. and the CRDA.
