Disaster Response

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance enables congregations and mission partners of the Presbyterian Church (USA) to witness to the healing love of Christ through caring for communities adversely affected by crisis and catastrophic event.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is the emergency and refugee program of the Presbyterian Church (USA). The core budget, including staff and administrative costs, is funded through the One Great Hour of Sharing, and its program work is additionally funded through designated gifts.

PDA has pages set up for information and relief donations for Hurricane FlorenceHurricane MichaelSuper Typhoon Mangkhut and the fires in California. You may also consider giving to the general US hurricane response fund or the Atlantic Regional Hurricane response fund (both U.S. and international hurricane response), and funds will go where they are most needed.

In addition to hurricane response, PDA is also responding to the Indonesian earthquake and tsunami. As we know, disasters often overlap, and with our support, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is able to respond to all of these disasters at the same time. We are all essential to this work.
