In the Middle East and United States, World Relief provides refugees with the materials and supplies they need to begin re-building their lives in a new country. In the Middle East, tarps, hygiene kits and basic home goods help refugees survive living in temporary housing. In the U.S., basic household supplies help arriving refugees acclimate more quickly to their new daily lives.
Early Childhood Education - “Kids Club”
In regions of war and persecution, children often suffer the most. In regions of the Middle East, World Relief partners with local churches and organizations to provide safe, child-friendly spaces for displaced children to learn, grow and play.
Raising children is a monumental task for any parent. But when your child has suffered the trauma and loss of being displaced, the challenges grow exponentially. World Relief partners with grass roots community organizations in the Middle East to teach mothers about health, nutrition and hygiene, providing them with the resources needed to ensure the long-term health of their children.
Refugees fleeing their homes and countries in the Middle East experience profound trauma from the effects of conflict and war, and continued challenges and stress as part of their daily life in displacement. World Relief is committed to serving these most vulnerable people by addressing not only their physical and economic needs, but by providing ongoing care to meet their psychosocial and spiritual needs as well.
Health and Hygiene
Whether living in dense urban centers or rural areas, refugees in the Middle East are forced to contend with a variety of health and hygiene challenges. World Relief addresses the health needs of adults and children through its WASH program (Water, Sanitation, Hygiene).
Because most refugees in the Middle East are not allowed to immediately begin working in their new countries, unemployment in refugee communities is rampant. World Relief works through local churches and community organizations in the Middle East to provide refugees with training and education programs that lead to increased social stability for refugees in their new country, eventually allowing the displaced to not only earn meaningful income, but contribute to the overall economic development of their new countries.
