Since the outset of the crisis, PWS&D has been responding through our partners at the ACT Alliance and Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
Together, we are providing basic food items, hygiene kits, shelter, clothing and essential non-food items. Partner staff on the ground are providing psychosocial, medical and educational support for children and youth living in refugee camps.
Respond with us!
Presbyterian World Service & Development is asking for your prayers and financial support to bring urgently needed assistance to people affected by the ongoing crisis.
