"The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) has committed $40,000 to help those stricken by Hurricane Irma in Cuba and Haiti, it announced September 12 . PWRDF set aside $20,000 for an appeal for Cuba announced by the ACT Alliance, a network of faith-based aid groups of which PWRDF is a member. The agency allocated another $10,000 for the Episcopal Church of Cuba and $10,000 for a request for rapid-response funds from the Haiti ACT Alliance forum, PWRDF said.
