PWS&D works with international partners to carry out long-term community development programs that empower vulnerable people to overcome root causes of poverty and create lasting change. We undertake holistic programs in the areas of food security, livelihoods, health and human rights.
PWS&D responds to emergencies around the world to help provide immediate assistance—food, shelter and medical attention—and long-term rehabilitation for those most affected.
Responses are carried out with local partners, as well as ACT Alliance, a global network of churches and faith-based organizations, and Canadian Foodgrains Bank, a coalition of 15 church and church-based agencies working to end hunger. Through these networks and coalitions, we maximize our impact—doing more together than we could alone.
Current program countries include:
