As well, PWRDF donated funds from its account in the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB) to a joint project that will feed 3,000 families for 2 months.  As part of an initiative by Canadian Churches in Action (CCA), PWRDF received $50,000 from the Manitoba Council for International Cooperation (MCIC) to provide emergency shelter for 550 affected families. Three ACT Alliance members and a number of their local partners are getting food, emergency shelter, hygiene kits, water and other emergency relief items to the most vulnerable flood affected communities in remote areas of Pakistan.  ACT has issued an appeal for 4.1 million USD, 34% of which has been funded thus far.
