Episcopal Relief & Development is the international relief and development agency of The Episcopal Church. Since 1940, Episcopal Relief & Development has been the compassionate response of the Episcopal Church to human suffering. Work takes place in over 40 countries and has transformed the lives of more than 2 million people. As an independent 501(c)(3) organization, Episcopal Relief & Development takes its mandate from Jesus’ words found in Matthew 25:40 – “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.” Episcopal Relief & Development programs work towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Together with the worldwide Church and ecumenical partners, Episcopal Relief & Development rebuilds after disasters and empowers people by offering lasting solutions that fight poverty, hunger and disease, including malaria and HIV/AIDS.
