You have a role to play.
A World in Crisis
At World Relief Memphis, 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.
100 million more people have been pushed into extreme poverty
More coups occurred in 2021 than in any year since 1999
Extreme weather events are increasing, disproportionately impacting poorer countries

People who want to move forward together to make deep and lasting change in our community and around the world.
As crises compound, the only way to move forward is together.
