In June, we received a grant from SAMS (The Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders) to help support our efforts to help the victims of the pandemic.
SAMS has developed a special grant program, called World Relief Fund to help missionaries respond to human need, and in this case to the COVID 19 pandemic.
So far, we have received a grant of $ 3,000 from this fund and we have been invited to apply again the next round of grants later this year.
Our President , The Rev. Tom Furrer has been a supporter of SAMS missionaries for the past 34 years. In 2016, when he transitioned from full-time parish ministry to devote more time to Kateri Medical Services , he became a SAMS “Associate Missionary”. In that capacity, he was invited to apply for this World Relief Fund grant, which was made available to all SAMS missionaries.
