Questions About Donations?
India is currently in the midst of a dramatic surge in COVID-19 cases, threatening its healthcare system and leaving already vulnerable families in crisis.
PWS&D COVID-19 Response
For more than a week, over 300,000 cases have been diagnosed daily. So far over 220,000 people have died in India and the crisis is only worsening.
Immediate needs are access to health care, medical supplies, and medicines, particularly oxygen. There is an urgent need to educate people on risk prevention and address vaccine hesitancy. Vaccine supply is insufficient and inaccessible to many, leaving herd immunity out of reach.
PWS&D is preparing to respond with its partners and ACT Alliance members in India to support people who are sick or quarantined at home with provisions to buy medicines and for other emergency needs. Additionally, they will work with communities to share messages on infection prevention and control, as well as information on vaccines.
You can make a donation to support PWS&D’s response to the India COVID crisis, by clicking below or calling us at 1-800-619-7301 or 416-441-1111 x291. Please include “India COVID Crisis” in the designation field.
Together We Serve
We are a vibrant denomination, working together to put our faith into action. Presbyterian Sharing is the national church fund that supports the mission and ministries we do together in Canada and around the world.
When we give to Presbyterian Sharing we participate in God’s mission. We help to build strong congregations by equipping ministers, theological students, youth, lay leaders and more. We serve vulnerable individuals and communities. We speak out against racism and seek healing and reconciliation. We share Christ’s love around the world by working with our mission partners. Through General Assembly, Presbyterians across Canada set the strategic direction of our ministry. All of this is possible through our gifts to Presbyterian Sharing.
St. Andrew’s supports Presbyterian World Service & Development and Presbyterian Sharing by contributing
a portion of donations received. You can allocate a portion of your donation to go to Missions by indicating your request
in the “message” field of the online donation form below.
We thank you for your generosity.
