Episcopal Relief & Development
Episcopal Relief & Development (ERD) is the international relief and development agency of the Episcopal Church of the United States. ERD’s programs provide emergency assistance in times of crisis and help communities rebuild after disasters, such as after hurricanes. ERD enables people to climb out of poverty by offering long-term solutions in the areas of food, security, and health care, including HIV/AIDS and malaria. The Gifts for Life Catalogs are available around Christmas and other special occasions. Many folks around the Diocese also use the ERD Lenten Meditations booklets.
