Episcopal Relief & Development:

Episcopal Relief & Development invites you to pray for and support communities responding to a devastating and dangerous hurricane season.

Hurricane Maria's path over the Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and other parts of the Caribbean is expected to bring significant hardship to those already affected by Hurricane Irma.

We are working with local Church partners to support their preparation for and response to the ongoing hurricane season.

In addition, ERD continues to address urgent needs in communities – from Texas to Florida to Georgia – that have been impacted by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey.

Please donate through the organization's website and get more information about relief and recovery efforts or send a check. FMI: With your partnership, we are healing a hurting world.
