VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York [Episcopal Relief & Development press release] The Right Reverend Michael B. Curry, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, has been appointed as Chair of Episcopal Relief & Development’s Board of Directors. The appointment was made by the board’s Honorary Chair, The Most Reverend Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church.Bishop Curry succeeds The Right Reverend Robert J. O’Neill, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Colorado, who has served since 2009.“Bishop Curry will bring vigor, passion, and insight to his work,” said Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori. “I give thanks for his willingness to serve in this way, and pray that his ministry may help to bless the world with healing.”A key leader in The Episcopal Church and a prophetic voice for social justice, Bishop Curry joined Episcopal Relief & Development’s board in 2013. Prior to his consecration as Bishop of North Carolina in 2000, he served parishes in North Carolina, Ohio and Maryland, implementing social development programs that improved the lives of children and youth in inner-city neighborhoods. As bishop, in addition to championing Episcopal Relief & Development at the diocesan and Church levels, Bishop Curry plays an important role on the Task Force for Reimagining The Episcopal Church (TREC).“Serving as Chair of Episcopal Relief & Development’s Board of Directors is a privilege and a responsibility that I take very seriously,” Bishop Curry said. “I am grateful for the leadership of Bishop O’Neill in the growth, professionalization and demonstration of expertise that has solidified the organization’s standing as a global leader in development – and as something of which all Episcopalians can be incredibly proud! I believe that the work of Episcopal Relief & Development is one of the finest and most important things we do as followers of Jesus in The Episcopal Church. It really is a way we can all together share in God’s work of helping and healing a hurting world.”In support of Episcopal Relief & Development, Bishop Curry notably co-chaired the Advisory Committee of the church-wide NetsforLife® Inspiration Fund and spearheaded diocesan efforts in support of the campaign. Altogether, the NetsforLife® Inspiration Fund raised $5 million over three years to grow the award-winning, flagship malaria prevention program, which to date has distributed over 11 million nets and saved the lives of more than 100,000 children under age five.“I am delighted by Bishop Curry’s appointment to chair Episcopal Relief & Development’s Board of Directors,” said Bishop O’Neill. “I am grateful to Episcopal Relief & Development’s staff and partners for their courageous work on behalf of communities worldwide, and I look forward to seeing what creative and deeper engagement will flourish under Bishop Curry’s leadership.”Bishop O’Neill finishes his board term at the end of 2014 after eight years, including six as chair. Under his leadership, the organization has developed and expanded through two transformative strategic plans – broadening the scope of NetsforLife®, strengthening Church capacity to respond to emergencies through the US Disaster Program and increasing focus on robust monitoring and evaluation practices. This organizational growth has enabled Episcopal Relief & Development to secure significant grants from leading foundations, including the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and a Grand Challenges Explorations Grant funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.“In addition to taking Episcopal Relief & Development to the next level as an organization and further professionalizing our operations, Bishop O’Neill has also been an invaluable mentor to me in my role as President,” said Rob Radtke, President of Episcopal Relief & Development. “He has created a tremendous legacy, and I very much look forward to working with Bishop Curry to build on our organizational successes, reaching more people and saving more lives through our partnerships worldwide.”Bishop Curry assumes Board leadership at an exciting time in the organization’s history, as it celebrates 75 years of healing a hurting world. The 75th Anniversary Celebration brings together Episcopalians and friends to commemorate and engage more deeply with its work. This celebration has been made possible by contributions from leaders across The Episcopal Church, notably outgoing Chair Bishop O’Neill.“Bishop O’Neill has served faithfully and creatively as a member and as Chair of the Board,” said Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori. “His experience and his persistent energy have given important impetus to the 75th Anniversary we celebrate this year. He will be missed, and as we give thanks for his service, we pray that his gifts will be offered in new ways in the years ahead.

One of the very first calls we had was from the Zurich Community Trust. The emergency funding that the Trust provided has helped us continue to feed nearly 150 homeless and vulnerable people each day in London.” Zurich Community Trust, Zurich’s UK charitable arm, has announced a £2m support package for charities tackling the Covid-19 crisis. The funds will be used to support Zurich Community Trust’s (ZCT) existing national and local charity partnerships, which are chosen by Zurich’s 4,500 UK employees and represent a cross section of the sector.A substantial portion of the overall fund has been allocated to supporting existing local partnerships with smaller community and voluntary groups, and also to previous partners where ZCT still has an active relationship. Grants are already being made with ZCT planning to make funds available throughout the year.Donations so far have included increasing ZCT’s funding this year to existing partner Dementia UK to £150,000, with £75,000 going to fund additional nurses on its helpline over the next 12-week period. It has also donated £75,000 to Alzheimer’s Society as part of the ‘Insurance United Against Dementia’ campaign, while an additional initial £25,000 has been awarded to the Wiltshire Community Foundation for the Wiltshire and Swindon Coronavirus Response fund to help the wider community and voluntary sector given Zurich’s presence and history in Swindon and surrounding areas.£134,000 has also been given to 15 local partner organisations in Birmingham, Cardiff, Croydon, Fareham, Farnborough, Leeds, London, Manchester and Swindon. Projects include The Soup Kitchen in central London, which is experiencing unprecedented demand with four nearby soup kitchens having closed down.Zurich is also contacting all partner charities to see how its employees can support them with skills-based assistance. A drop-in digital marketing surgery via webex will be one of the first events to be hosted by Zurich’s marketing team, in response to requests from charities. This will be followed by an external PR workshop looking at how these organisations can share stories about the services they provide. Zurich’s UK Staff are also being encouraged to use their three allocated volunteering days as an opportunity to support people and communities affected by the Covid-19 crisis.In addition, Zurich has launched a fundraising appeal among its employees to make donations to the National Emergencies Trust to help UK charities over the coming months.Steve Grimmett, Head of Zurich Community Trust said:“We are aware of the huge impact Covid-19 is already having on charities. We’ve all seen how fundraising is being hit hard already at a time when demand for charities’ services are increasing along with the costs incurred to deliver these.“In response, we are focusing our funding towards charities we have existing relationships with who are working to support individuals and communities hit hardest. We are working in partnership and will be here to support organisations over the coming weeks and months. At the same time, we’re looking at ways to deploy the support of our employees who are keen to share valuable skills and expertise with those working on the front line.”Alexander Brown, Director, The Soup Kitchen added: Advertisement Zurich Community Trust announces £2m Covid-19 support package 294 total views, 3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Tagged with: COVID-19 Funding About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Huang has been held in China for two years and is seriously ill.”On the rare visits allowed to them, Huang Qi’s lawyers found that Huang was the victim of repeated beatings and denials of medical treatment, which is clearly torture because of his state of health” said Cédric Alviani, director of RSF’s East Asia office. “Huang is now at risk, if he is not released immediately, to fall victim to the same fate as the Nobel Peace Prize and RSF award-winner Liu Xiaobo, and blogger Yang Tongyan, who died last year in detention.”Since November 28, 2016, the journalist has been detained without trial at Mianyang detention center in Sichuan province for “disclosure of state secrets abroad.” The mistreatments inflicted on Huang, which appear to be intended to force the journalist to plead guilty, are all the more worrying because Huang is seriously ill in the kidneys, heart and liver. In addition to his current detention, he spent eight years in prison and previous time in labor camps, which caused his health problems to worsen.China is one of the world’s most egregious jailers of journalists, holding more than 60 professional and non-professional journalists behind bars.

This funding will enable the Company to initiate human clinical trials with its lead drug DF-006, a first-in-class, orally bioavailable drug for hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and other liver diseases. The financing will also be used to further advance Drug Farm’s additional pipeline candidates for therapies in cancer and autoimmune diseases. Drug Farm investors include BioVeda China Fund (BVCF), WuXi AppTec’s corporate venture fund, South China Venture Capital (SCVC), Detong Capital, and Zhejiang United Investment Group (ZUIG). “Since the inception of Drug Farm, we have successfully leveraged our forward genetics technology, piggyBac transposon mutagenesis to discover new targets, connect them to diseases, and advance candidates toward clinical development,” said Dr. Tian Xu, founder and Chairman of Drug Farm. “Using our deep learning AI technology, we have been able to rapidly develop small molecule drugs against these targets, with an initial focus on HBV.” Dr. Henri Lichenstein, CEO and Board Member of Drug Farm, commented, “HBV infection remains being a big unmet medical need worldwide. Despite the availability of several drugs that can decrease viral load, cure is seldom achieved. DF-006 is a new drug to treat HBV; we appreciate the commitment and confidence of Drug Farm’s investors for the financing enabling us to advance our candidate into clinical trials.” “Treatments aiming to obtain HBsAg and/or HBV cccDNA clearance will represent a real breakthrough in HBV therapy,” said Dr. Lishan Su, Drug Farm Scientific Advisory Board member and Director of Division of Virology, Pathogenesis, and Cancer of the Institute of Human Virology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. “DF-006 represents an exciting new mechanistic approach to treat chronic HBV through modulation of the body’s own innate immunity.” About Drug Farm Drug Farm is a China- and US-based biotech developing innovative treatments targeting innate immunity for HBV, cancer, and autoimmune diseases.
