Anglican Relief & Development, Lenten Appeal

The latest press release from Anglican Relief & Development encourages us to consider sacrificial giving to those in need in the Global South as part of our Lenten disciplines. We at Lent & Beyond highly commend ARDF’s work and this appeal:

The Anglican Relief and Development Fund (ARDF) is asking Anglican Christians in North America to engage in the discipline of giving during the season of Lent.

According to Canon Nancy Norton, ARDF’s executive director, gifts marked “Lenten Appeal” will be used to help fund seven projects that have already received approval from ARDF’s board.

Those projects include work in the Democratic Republic of Congo to repair and expand the Lwanwa Primary school, reaching out to the poor and marginalized in North Bangalore, India, helping pregnant women in Brazil, enabling displaced Kenyans to return home, and rescuing Nepalese sex-trafficking victims. (full descriptions of all of the approved projects are available here.
