Episcopal Relief & Development Announces Two New Web Series

As part of an ongoing effort to highlight the critical role of partnership in its work, Episcopal Relief &Development is launching two new web series, The Power of Partnerships and Friends of Episcopal Relief & Development.

The two series focus on the essential contributions of partners; The Power of Partnerships highlights the agency’s worldwide church and ecumenical collaborators and Friends of Episcopal Relief &Development features individual donors, special church campaigns and creative approaches employed by volunteers to engage in the agency’s work.

These monthly series, along with the weekly President’s Blog, offer an in-depth exploration of the values, strategies and relationships Episcopal Relief &Development combines in its work to heal a hurting world.

"Communication with those who support our work is very important to us," said Lorenzo Martinez, Vice President of External Affairs of Episcopal Relief &Development. "These two new web series provide a means for us to share how partnership, in the field and at home, is key to transforming communities and alleviating suffering around the world."

The first The Power of Partnerships focuses on the Holy Land Institute of the Deaf in Jordan, a program of our partner the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem. The first Friends of Episcopal Relief &Development looks at the amazing efforts of Abby Eibin for NetsforLife®.
