Supporting the people of  Syria in a peaceful way.  

Episcopal Relief & Development is responding to the ongoing crisis in Syria through two local partners, the Holy Land Institute for the Deaf (HLID) in Jordan and the Lebanon-based Fellowship of Middle East Evangelical Churches (FMEEC) in Syria itself.  FMEEC aims to assist at least 50 families in the hard-hit city of Homs with building materials and food rations.  HLID is providing services and equipment for people with disabilities in the Zaatari refugee camp near Al Mafraq, just south of the Syrian border.

 

 Members of our church support Episcopal Relief and Development

 

In 2011, Episcopal Relief & Development spent 86% on programs versus 6% on administration and 8% on fundraising. Because of the support they receive from the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society in the form of contributed services, in addition to income from their own investments, at least 90% of every donor dollar goes directly to programs

Lord, when was it that 
We saw you hungry and gave you food?
We saw you thirsty and gave you something to drink?
We saw you a stranger and welcomed you?
We saw you sick and took care of you?
We saw you in prison and visited you?
‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’

—Matthew 25: 37-40 (NRSV)

 

A tradition of saving lives.

Since 1940, Episcopal Relief & Development has been healing a hurting world. As

the compassionate response of the Episcopal Church to human suffering, the

agency takes its mandate from Jesus’ words found in Matthew 25:30-40. Episcopal

Relief & Development embraces the Episcopal Church’s principles of compassion,

dignity and generosity and helps Episcopalians answer God’s call to serve Christ in

all persons—caring for the sick, feeding the hungry and welcoming the stranger.

 

 

Episcopal Relief and Development, last year reached out to more then two million people both here and abroad, to address poverty, hunger, disease and to bring disaster relief.
