¶445 COMPASSION MINISTRIES AND SOCIAL CONCERNS: World Relief Fund

2.      World Relief Fund

World Relief Canada is a Christian organization designated as the official humanitarian assistance arm of Evangelical Fellowship of Canada.  Because it represents several denominations working in partnership with a commitment to the indigenous church, famine and disaster relief projects have access to additional Canadian government funding through matching grants. The Free Methodist Church in Canada, through World Relief Canada, also participates in the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

The World Relief Fund is supported voluntarily by Free Methodist churches across Canada usually through a fall campaign or as determined by the local church through the year.  Funds designated to World Relief are channeled through the Canadian church or directly to World Relief Canada.  Seventy percent of the funds received are disbursed to World Relief and 30% is designated to the Bishop’s Relief Fund for similar Free Methodist specific projects world-wide.
