"The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) has a new agreement with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). The agreement will provide $10.8 million over five years for projects focusing on maternal and child health in 59 villages in Burundi, Mozambique and Tanzania. 'We've had exceptional results from programs that this funding will extend', Adele Finney, executive director of PWRDF, told the 'Anglican Journal', adding that PWRDF will contribute about half a million dollars per year to the program and CIDA will provide the remaining $8.1 million. 'While it is more money from CIDA', Finney explained, 'it is also more money that PWRDF is putting forward for this program'. Among other things, the new funding will pay for 100 more bicycle ambulances in countries such as Mozambique, where one ambulance serves a population of 400,000. The new funding is expected to benefit about 1.5 million people". [Text of entire article.]

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'."
