EPISCOPAL RELIEF & DEVELOPMENT:  Healing a Hurting World
Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food?  We saw you thirsty and gave you something to drink?  We saw you a stranger and welcomed you?  We saw you sick and took care of you?  We saw you in prison and visited you?

‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’  --Matthew 25:37-40

Episcopal Relief & Development is the international relief and development agency of The Episcopal Church of the United States. It supports local responses to disasters and unique long-term initiatives that address poverty, hunger, economic development, and disease, including HIV/AIDS and malaria. As an independent organization (with its own 501(c)3 charitable status) since 1940, ERD takes its mandate from Jesus’ words in Matthew 25:37-40.  Together with the worldwide Church, ecumenical agencies, and local organizations, ERD works toward achieving the Millennium Development Goals by helping to save lives and strengthen communities in the United States and more than 40 countries around the world.
