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.
