The Anglican Relief and Development Fund was created to be the strong hands of Christ reaching out in solidarity with Anglicans around the world. ARDF encourages families and communities with practical help and solid solutions of a living gospel that feeds body, soul, and spirit so that all may live the abundant life and seek eternal life in Jesus Christ. ARDF supports researched development projects with local implementers, with measureable results, and with sustainable life change utilizing a holistic approach changing lives not only physically but also spiritually.

The Anglican Church of Cambodia seeks to establish a new church in Phnom Penh Thmey. It will be located in a growing municipality in the suburbs of Phnom Penh. This will allow the diocese to provide church and discipleship services to members, train church leaders, conduct youth and children ministries, and support community development programs to meet the needs of the congregation. The diocese will also establish a hostel for girls from poor surrounding villages.
Misión Desafío, of the Anglican Church of Guatemala, serves a community of about 510 families who survive off whatever they scavenge from within the Guatemala City landfill. Church leaders want to construct a Community Outreach Center that will serve these families. Being located in a building will strengthen existing programs that now take place outdoors and allow the church to start new programs. Plans are also underway for a Christian primary school for 120 students starting in 2023.
The Anglican Diocese of Hyderabad will provide funding to equip a vocational training school for women, provide mobile healthcare for rural and marginalized Christians, pay school fees for vulnerable children, and offer computer training for at-risk youth. Beneficiaries will also receive personal support and spiritual mentorship, as well as hands-on training for employment, enabling them to earn a livelihood and live a respectable life.
The Anglican Church of Rwanda wants to expand its early childhood development program by opening 10 church-based centers in Karongi, Rwanda. The Anglican Relief and Development Fund (ARDF) will partner with the diocese to provide a quality, informal, preschool education to 1,200 children, ages 3 to 6, over two years. Each of the 10 facilities will serve 120 children, as well as the children’s parents or caregivers who will receive training on early childhood development.
On the morning of February 6, 2023 a massive 7.8 earthquake struck southeast Turkey, killing thousands people and leaving devastation across a wide swath of the country and into northern Syria. Nine hours later, a second earthquake followed. ARDF is collecting funds for this disaster through the Joseph Fund, and is currently working to connect with partners on the ground.
As part of its mission to grow the church and effectively meet the educational needs of young Nepalese, the Anglican Church of Nepal will use funding to purchase land for the construction of a three-story school building for Joy Land School that will be used as a kindergarten and primary school for 120 students in Pokhara in Central Nepal. It will enable the children to grow and develop their knowledge and talents regardless of race, caste, or religion.
ARDF is working with our partners in the Ukraine and its neighboring countries who are ministering to the physical and spiritual needs of Ukranian refugees.
We are currently using Joseph Fund donations to help churches prepare for Hurricane Ian. In Pakistan, we are responding to the disastrous flooding affecting upwards of 30 million people. We continue to fund disaster response efforts in KY, as well as other relief efforts not making the evening news. We are grateful for this fund that allows us to continue to contribute to disaster relief efforts above and beyond what we raise for specific events. Contact us to learn more!
The Anglican Church of Indonesia wants to construct a school that would serve preschoolers to high school students to increase the impact of Christianity in West Timor and help counter the ongoing aggressive Islamic evangelism. In addition to an office and administrative block, the first phase will include a kindergarten program for 75 students and a clinic that will serve 12,000 Timorese people. This project will also provide basic medical care in remote areas of the province.
