P.W.R.D.F. – Update for September, 2014

PWRDF has sent $15,000 through the ACT Alliance in response to the Ebola outbreak in western Africa.  Since January, 2014, the outbreak has claimed over 1900 lives in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, and more than 3500 people have been infected with the virus in those countries.

The PWRDF response is providing education to people in Liberia to help them to recognize the symptoms of Ebola and to prevent its spread.  70 trainers will be sensitized to the disease and trained in Ebola virus awareness and prevention.  These trainers will then educate 6400 people in 16 communities in Bong and Lofa counties near the border of Sierra Leone through workshops and awareness meetings.

Your donation to this worthy cause would be very  much appreciated.  To read more about this and other stories please go to www.pwrdf.org.

Holy Trinity Gives Prayer Shawls and Lap Ropes to Hospice

A message from Postulant Paul Richards regarding a recent donation of Prayer Shawls and Lap Robes from Holy Trinity's Prayer Shawl Plus ministry to the WRSS Hospice:

“The prayer shawls and lap robes handmade by the ladies at Holy Trinity were delivered on August 12, 2014, to the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society across from Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock. The Acting Director Beth Kish and staff were very appreciative of the handmade products, which were blessed by our Rector Neil, saying; We enjoyed looking at all of the beautiful colours, workmanship and honoured the gentle hearts and hands that made each one. Our Coordinator of volunteers will ensure that each one is given to the hospice patients and we know they will be used for comfort and cherished! Thank you once again for your support and generous heart! "

Pictured above is Postulant Paul Richards delivering the 9 lap robes and 15 prayer shawls, with Ms. Kish holding one of the lap robes. This is one of our outreach ministries that makes such an enormous difference in the lives of the members of our community. More about Holy Trinity's Prayer Shawl Plus Ministry >>
