World Refugee Day

Make a Difference in the Lives of Refugees and Displaced People

Today, the world is experiencing an unprecedented crisis. Hundreds of millions of people have been driven from their homes by violent conflict, climate change and extreme poverty.

Over 36 million have been forced to seek safety outside their home countries as refugees — the most in recorded history.

If this breaks your heart, we're right there with you. The need for solutions is urgent. Here’s the good news: there’s something you can do to help right here in our community.


“To be a refugee is not an easy thing. It’s just a thing you have to do to pray to God. God helped me because I became strong and fight for the kids to grow up…in a safer place.”

Goreth from DR Congo

For 80 years, World Relief has been responding to the needs of displaced people around the globe. In the 1970s, we became the first evangelical organization authorized to welcome refugees in the U.S., guiding and working alongside the U.S. government to build the national resettlement program that still exists today.

"But once I got [to Memphis], I told them all my story. They were able to process the visa for [my husband] Abdinasir, and now he’s here. In many, many, many ways, my survival was because of World Relief."

Rafia from Ethiopia
