Notes
"The Anglican Church of Canada's General Synod has requested bishops and deans to focus, for 22 days, from May 31 to June 21 [2017], on renewing the church's commitment to support the work of the Anglican Fund for Healing and Reconciliation through prayers, participation in awareness-raising campaigns and donations. Early this year [2017], Council of General Synod (CoGS) agreed to dedicate the undesignated proceeds of Giving with Grace, General Synod's annual fundraising campaign, to replenish the fund. For the next five years, the fund -- created in 1992 as part of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement -- will focus on language recovery". General Secretary, Archdeacon Michael Thompson, "stressed that while the Anglican Church of Canada has met its legal obligations under the settlement agreement, 'we're far from finished with our spiritual and moral obligation to continue to support the healing work that is underway among those survivors and in those communities'."

Notes
"The Anglican Church of Canada's relief and development arm, Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), has released $20,000 to help relief efforts of its partners in Nepal, right after a massive earthquake on April 25 [2015] killed more than 8,000 people and injured more than 17,866 others. Among those who died were an Anglican minister and 17 of his parishioners in the village of Choke, according to a report from the Anglican Communion News Service. A second powerful earthquake on May 12 [2015] killed an additional 66 people. Aid agencies expressed fears that the arrival of the monsoon season will trigger landslides and an outbreak of disease. Anglicans had, at press time, donated $167,937 toward PWRDF's relief efforts in Nepal". "The magnitude 7.8 earthquake, which struck the region between the capital Kathmandu and the city of Pokara, affected at least eight million people, with two million of them displaced from their homes". "PWRDF announced that it was responding through its partner, ACT Alliance, a global organization of church-based agencies working in emergencies worldwide".
