CLWR invites your support for the following special appeals.
Back to School Appeal: Support children in the DRC with life-saving therapeutic food
With your help, intensive therapeutic units will be stocked with therapeutic food, milk and medications that are needed to treat more than 3000 internally displaced children who are malnourished. You can make it possible for parents and caregivers to learn new ways of preparing nutrition-rich food at home.
Your gift will be matched on a four-to-one basis, thanks to CLWR’s membership in the Canadian Foodgrains Bank and the support of the Government of Canada. This means your gift will have four times the impact!
2018 is the 35th anniversary of Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Its goal is to end global hunger. CLWR has been a member right from the beginning. During this anniversary year, you are invited to join us in celebrating this partnership of Canadian churches through the Foodgrains Bank by making a special donation to our Working Together appeal. Your gift will enable us, working with other Canadian churches and local partners, to provide emergency food for those caught in famine or facing other urgent needs around the world.
Seeds of Hope
Your gift will provide small-scale farmers in Ethiopia with the life-giving water they need to grow healthy and nutritious food. Irrigation canals will be built and connected to their plots of land. These canals will provide water for them today, tomorrow and years to come.
Support Refugee Sponsorship
Donations are accepted to support the refugee sponsorship activities that CLWR provides to help churches and other groups to sponsor refugees. This may include meeting with potential sponsors, providing workshops and information, completing the administrative requirements for sponsorship, and assisting the refugee families when they arrive.
