World Accord accepting donations for the


I wanted to let people know that while World Accord does NOT not have a partner currently on the ground in the Philippines, we do have a long history of helping there so we will accept donations from any who would like us to find a trustworthy organization to support in the field.  We will ensure the report is filed with the Canadian government so the funds are matched according to their new matching process.   People can call the office to make donations over the phone.

The church has sent $15,000 to India and $15,000 to the Philippines “so far” to assist victims of the ongoing disasters. We sent the funds out of the Abolish Poverty End Suffering funds. There will be more sent as soon as we get more information. These funds are all going to members of the church affected by the storms. Most have lost their homes and we are rebuilding peoples’ lives. There will be an official announcement coming out of communications department but I wanted you to know that we are already assisting and that members in Canada should be encouraged to support Abolish Poverty End Suffering on their envelopes.
