Hope lies in the moment between
what is and what is possible. 

A mother’s wish is universal–
to ensure health and safety for her child.

Last year over 65.3 million people were forced from the homes and countries they love.

World Relief’s programs and partners are leaning into our years of expertise, and coming alongside local churches to serve and support refugees: feeding, clothing, sheltering, and loving those who need help. This is especially true when it comes to the youngest and most vulnerable refugees. 

In regions of war and persecution, children often suffer the most. In the Middle East, World Relief provides safe, child-friendly spaces where displaced children can learn, grow, and develop important life skills such as peacemaking and conflict-resolution. Kids Clubs offer a place for children with a trauma-filled past to once again find the freedom to play, sing, and dream amidst their present circumstances. Learn more about Refugee Crisis

 
 

Women and children make up roughly 80% of the individuals who directly benefit from World Relief’s programs.

Last year, over 951,700 mothers and children received health, nutrition, and disease-prevention services in countries across Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. World Relief offers programs designed to strengthen families by addressing HIV prevention and treatment, care of orphans and vulnerable children, sexual and gender-based violence, and gender equality. Our multi-year Innovation Child Survival Program in Rwanda recently closed with impressive results: More than half of children under the age of two living in intervention areas saw improvement in their overall nutrition.

In 2015, World Relief and its partners served more than 602,800 people through disaster response and disaster risk-reduction programs.

This year already has brought the Ecuador earthquake, the liberation of Iraqi cities from ISIS, extreme drought in Southern Africa, and unprecedented waves of displacement in the Middle East. And World Relief was there each time – responding with courage and grit, working to stabilize disaster zones and help the people in the affected regions thrive once again.

In the face of a disaster, World Relief responds by providing emergency shelter, potable water, hygiene kits, sanitation facilities, and hygiene training. In addition to meeting the physical needs associated with a disaster, World Relief works with local partners and churches to address the psychosocial and spiritual needs of those impacted by disaster.
