"Healing a Hurting World"

We do local outreach in our Parish but we also set aside funds for our foreign neighbors.  Following the news and their website we support projects to help people in crisis, or to support development programs such as clean water, and access to Doctors for people that live in distant and remote areas.

We have held an ERD "Gifts for Life" Mission Fair ​which we hope to establish as an annual event.  ERD provides development assistance through their "Gifts for Life" program. Through the compassion of our giving Parishioners we were able to send a contribution that would help so many of those in need.

We have sent contributions for Hurricane recovery in the United States, help for Central American children arriving in Texas, Syrian Refugees arriving in Europe, and to their Global Fund.

"Healing a Hurting World"

Christ Church Durham Parish, Nanjemoy, Maryland Instagram Page

ERD is a non-profit organization that works through connections in the United States, and the World to provide both relief from catastrophe and development in impoverished third world countries.  The assistance they provide is so important for the people living in Third World Countries that have little resources and no development support from their government.  

Their logo "Healing a Hurting World" is as true to our desire and compassion as it is to theirs!​​

They reach countries all over the World and provide relief and development to many of the Third World Countries.  Without an organization such as ERD, it would be very difficult for us to provide assistance to our neighbors in distant parts of the World.
