Presbyterian Disaster Assistance enables congregations and mission partners of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to witness to the healing love of Christ through caring for communities adversely affected by crisis and catastrophic events. Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is the emergency and refugee program of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Its 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. Westwood Presbyterian Church has made significant contributions in recent years to PDA to aid victims of the 2004 Asian tsunami, the 2005 hurricanes in the Southeastern U.S., the humanitarian crisis in Darfur, the earthquakes in both Haiti and Japan, tornado’s in the U.S and many more.
