Partnership provides life-changing support for Fort McMurray residents: Canadian Lutheran World Relief

In Fort McMurray, Alberta, the more than $527,500 raised by Canadian Lutherans and others is helping residents as they resettle and rebuild more than a year after wildfires caused widespread devastation in the region.

Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) is partnering with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) and Lutheran Church–Canada (LCC) to help meet the physical and psychosocial needs of community members. CLWR is grateful to Rev. Dr. Larry Kochendorfer, Bishop of the Synod of Alberta and the Territories (ABT), and Rev. Dr. Glenn Schaeffer, President of the Alberta-British Columbia District (ABC), for their counsel and guidance as we respond to this life-altering event.

“CLWR appreciates the good collaboration with the ELCIC ABT & LCC ABC in response to this disaster and the very strong support from constituents,” says Robert Granke, CLWR’s Executive Director. “It is gratifying to see the timely and important support offered to the community as they rebuild their lives and look forward to a positive future.
