"By the end of August , The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) had received a total of $25,600 in donations to help people in Pakistan facing one of the worst flooding disasters in its recorded history". "In August , PWRDF prepared a special appeal bulleting for distribution at church services across the country. The bulletin outlined what PWRDF had already contributed to relief efforts, including an initial grant of $15,000 for rapid response. This was channelled through the Action by Churches Together (ACT), an ecumenical international aid group of which PWRDF is a member. PWRDF also donated funds from its Canadian Foodgrains Bank account to a joint project that will feed 3,000 families for two months. As part of an initiative by Canadian Churches in Action, PWRDF also received $50,000 from the Manitoba Council for International Co-operation to provide emergency shelter for 550 affected families".
