A Message from Episcopal Relief and Development
Help us be there for communities impacted by COVID-19

Last week the deadly spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus 2019) was officially declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. Please know that all of us at Episcopal Relief & Development are praying for you and your loved ones in these difficult and frightening times. While the full extent of the virus's impact is still not clear, and knowing what actions to take may feel uncertain, one thing we can always do is prepare. Now is a time to hold fast to our faith and continue on with hope. Or, as Luke 12:35-38 says,  "Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit."

That is why Episcopal Relief & Development will continue to be that light for our neighbors in need right now. I hope you will join us  by making a donation to our COVID-19 Pandemic Response efforts today.

COVID-19 is having wide-ranging effects — in our own church communities here at home and in communities around the world.  Your support  today, will help us:
  •  Provide our partners with critical resources to help local communities both immediately and in the long run
  •  Ensure the most up-to-date and accurate knowledge about the disease is continuously shared, including training on personal and community preparedness
  •  Help partners support high-risk communities who are most vulnerable to COVID-19
  •  Adapt and act to meet the changing needs of those we serve as the emergency evolves

As you know, our preparedness and response work are devoted to helping communities recover and emerge stronger from COVID-19 and its devastating impact. Your support is critical in this,  so please make a donation to our COVID-19 Pandemic Response efforts today.

Stay healthy and safe, and thank you again for keeping your lamp lit for your neighbors both here at home and around the world.

Yours faithfully,

Robert W. Radtke
President & CEO
