When disaster strikes—specifically in already vulnerable regions—World Relief responds by providing immediate aid and working with the local communities to develop and provide programs that will allow these regions to address the crisis head-on so that they begin to thrive once again.
Hurricane Irma Response
Just two weeks after Hurricane Harvey caused catastrophic flooding in the U.S., Hurricane Irma has now torn a destructive path across the Caribbean, along the north side of Haiti and is poised to make landfall in southern Florida this weekend.
Dozens have already lost their lives and thousands have lost their homes and livelihoods. In the areas impacted, it will likely be months—or even years—before residents can fully recover.
But we can help speed that recovery.
World Relief is committed to delivering immediate aid and ongoing assistance to victims in multiple impacted areas. Donate today to help local churches and partners serving those affected in the Carribbean, Haiti and U.S.
Hurricane Harvey Recovery
The people and churches of Texas and Louisiana need our help.
On August 25, 2017, Hurricane Harvey made landfall near Rockport, TX. It was the first Category 4 hurricane to hit the United States in a decade. Over a period of four days, many areas in South Texas received more than 40 inches of rain. The storm claimed the lives of at least 27 people and floodwaters forced tens of thousands from their homes. It will likely take years for Texas to recover.
World Relief has established an emergency recovery fund to provide direct financial aid to churches taking part in the rebuilding efforts ahead. Donate today to support churches committed to standing with victims every step of the way.
Africa Food Crisis
Africa is currently facing the worst food crisis since 1945. Millions could die in the coming months.
The collision of climate change, population growth and regional conflict has created massive food shortages across multiple countries in Africa. While the cause varies from country to country, the needs are largely the same—immediate provision of food and water, as well as long-term solutions that address the root causes.
We need your help now.
Feed the hungry in Africa and help prevent future crises.
The Refugee Crisis
Over 65.6 million of the world’s population has been forcibly displaced.
Families have been forced to flee their homes, communities, and the worlds they know. Nearly a third of these people are formally classified by the United Nations as refugees, and all need our help.
The refugee crisis is the the greatest, most complex humanitarian crises of our generation. But making a difference in the lives of refugees in the U.S. and around the world doesn’t have to be complex.
Your donation supports World Relief to serve refugees through our programs in the Middle East and the United States.
South Asia Flooding Response
Background & Current Response:
Because of torrential monsoon rains, nearly 41 million people have been affected by flooding and landslides in Bangladesh, India and Nepal. At least 900 people are known to have died, and that number continues to rise. Hundreds of thousands of people across the region have been forced to flee their homes and are in immediate need of food and lifesaving supplies.
As World Relief has monitored this situation, it has become clear that thousands more could die in the upcoming weeks and months. So we are acting now—working tirelessly with our partners on the ground to meet the urgent needs of the vulnerable affected by the floods. We pray you’ll join us.
