Emergency Relief and Oversea Development
Established in 1983, the Emergency Relief and Overseas Development arm of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, has been helping people through crises of war, natural disaster and the hunger and thirst of poverty to over 35 countries.
ERDO workers, working from best-practice methodology and results-based measurements, bring short-term relief of food, emergency shelter and clean water in times of crisis and natural disaster. ERDO is focused on four key areas that span from immediate aid to long-term programs: crisis response, food assistance, child sponsorship and community development.
Long-term development brings communities to a point where they are self-sustaining, and stable. This is the ultimate goal of ERDO – to “do good”, not just for today, but for the long term.
Thanks to the generous giving of our members, RHPC has raised $12,000 for Philippines Relief through the Emergency Relief and Development Organization of The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.
