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.
Kenya Food Crisis — Turkana County
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.
Haiti - Hurricane Matthew Relief
Background & Current Response:
On October 3, 2016, a Category 4 hurricane struck Haiti, a nation with weak infrastructure, inadequate alert systems and environmental degradation. Haitian officials have now reported at least 1000 deaths, a number which could continue to rise. The UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs also reported that 350,000 residents were in need of immediate aid.
Because of our longstanding relationship with churches throughout Haiti, World Relief has a built-in system to deliver that aid, one that empowers local leaders in Haiti lead their own relief efforts.
