You have a role to play.

A World in Crisis

At World Relief, we know you want to be a person of faith-filled compassion and meaningful action. But as crises compound, you’re overwhelmed and don’t know where to start.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, every one of us has experienced challenges beyond anything we could have ever imagined. On top of that, COVID-19 has pushed 100 million people back into extreme poverty. Conflict and disasters fueled by climate change have both increased, resulting in the greatest displacement crisis in recorded history.

This trifecta of COVID, conflict and climate change has left us facing the most significant humanitarian crisis in centuries — one that none of us can take on alone.

HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS: TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

As we look back over nearly 80 years of history at World Relief, we see how God has prepared us for this very moment, bringing together a global network of churches and people like you — people who don’t want to just do church, but who want to be the church. People who want to move forward together to make deep and lasting change in their communities and around the world.

As crises compound, the only way to move forward is together.

Here’s how you can move with us:

When you give to World Relief, you become the hands and feet of Jesus, reaching across the globe to make a tangible difference in the lives of those who are suffering. In a time of such great need, we need you on our team.

An old African proverb counsels,

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."

You have a vital role to play in helping us meet the urgent needs of this historic moment. World Relief and millions of people around the world need you. Together, we can embody the hope of Jesus, going further to reach more people with more resources through more churches than we ever dreamed possible.

It’s not too late to make a difference. Will you join us?
