Keep it simple, Lent 2018: Resources
Welcome to this page which aims to introduce you to the new face of the old Methodist Relief and Development Fund organisation.
And let me introduce you to Maurice Adams the Chief Executive of All We Can who accompanied me and the President of Conference at that time, the Reverend Ruth Gee in August 2013 as we visited several projects in Cameroon, West Africa. You can read about that here.
We hope and trust that you will be as faithful and supportive of All We Can as you have been for the old MRDF – they are the same. Now the time has come to move forward, to ‘build on the strengths’ as Maurice says. We know you will continue to care for the poorest of our world and recognise that, though times change, the poor (sadly) are always with us. The need for Relief and Development in parts of the world is still huge but the situation has changed and the change of name and focus reflects those changes. The organisation is no longer simply a ‘Fund’ and the name change reflects this. However, we must emphasize that the commitment to work with the Methodist Church and its members is still as strong as ever – hence the inclusion of ‘Methodist’ in its logo. We trust that as they seek to do all they can we will support them and continue to do All We Can to help the poorest of the world.
May God bless them in their new venture and especially all the individuals that work together to make the organisation what it has been and what it will grow into in the future.

PS I went to the launch of the new name in Brunswick MC, Newcastle on 3rd April along with the President. It was an exciting evening and a wonderful opportunity to meet some of the staff and supporters. There is a new feeling of excitement and hope as they step out in faith.
