The September issue of Lamplight, Episcopal Relief & Development’s disaster program newsletter is available to read online.
This month, we offer prayers for the survivors, first responders and families affected by September 11th and Hurricane Matthew, as well as other disasters over the last several years. As we gear up for potentially catastrophic hurricanes this season, we center the communities that struggle with gaining access to clean water, healthy food, adequate transportation and quality medical care long before a disaster strikes. Our programs during times of relief and recovery are often in those places. May God bless The Episcopal Church and ecumenical partners who have a presence on the margins and a heart for working together with us for lasting change. During hurricane season, Episcopal Relief & Development remains ready to respond and uplift vulnerable groups.
