Together, we’re saving lives—before, during and after disaster strikes.
Hundreds of disasters occur each year, causing immense suffering, destruction and loss.
With your help, we can respond to these disasters and save lives. Thanks to you, in the last year alone we were able to provide more than 2 million women, men and children in 10 different countries with humanitarian aid and disaster response. When you give, you help us with both immediate response and risk reduction activities.

We also believe there is an opportunity to reduce suffering by taking a proactive approach to disasters, so we work to reduce communities’ underlying vulnerabilities and build cultures of resilience.
We train and mobilize churches and community members to share disaster preparedness messages with neighbors so that when disasters do strike, devastation and loss are significantly reduced.
“Indeed, the community was beginning to complain since the government had not yet addressed their need. World Relief has filled a big gap for us, and as Mayor, I thank World Relief on behalf of the citizens of this community, and I pray that God will bless you and support you so that you can achieve much more for other areas like ours.” -
Fénicile Macius, Mayor of the Camp-Perrin commune, Les Cayes Haiti
“In a twinkle of the eye, I saw the back wall of our foundation caving in and the house started to shudder at that point. I screamed and warned everyone to vacate… Thanks to God that World Relief has come on time to give us the very things we needed.” -
Enifa Pitiless, Kaphuka, Malaw
“World Relief was the first and only institution to give a quick response in our communities in 2016. The hurricane had destroyed everything but God used it to build a united church of different denominations...among the most vulnerable.”
- Pastor Audrigue, Les Cayes, Haiti

When the small puddle jumper plane landed on its rinky-dink airstrip, I came to grips with the fact that I was face to face with one of the world’s oldest, most isolated, and yet most intact cultures.
