2017/09/01 Hurricane Harvey

"Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast as Category 4 storm when it made landfall on August 25 and has become the largest rainstorm in US history (the amount of rain fallen in these few days is equivalent to the total annual rainfall in Texas). To date, 30 deaths have been reported, and the storm has caused massive flooding and destruction and forced thousands from their homes. ERD, PWRDF's sister agency in the United States, is partnering with the Episcopal Diocese of Texas to provide temporary housing, food, spiritual care and other emergency supplies.

Those wishing to donate to Hurricane Harvey can do so online through our Canada Helps page, designating the donation to Hurricane Harvey, option three. https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/the-primates-world-relief-and-development-fund-pwrdf/
