Together, we're rebuilding communities of love and welcome.
We can restore hope to thousands of refugees and other immigrants as we rebuild communities of love and welcome across our nation.
Today, there are over 80 million people around the globe who have been forced, or made the painful choice, to leave their homes. Threatened by extreme poverty, violence, and oppression, they leave behind everything familiar to seek a life free from fear.
Thousands of these families look to the United States every year as they search for a safe place to rebuild their lives. A beacon of hope on the world stage.
And yet, recent years have turned many of the most basic human issues into controversial ones. This has only become more true throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Being a compassionate citizen and advocate for the most vulnerable has become a painful and difficult process, further confused by ever-changing policies and practices that have left many of us confused, disempowered and paralyzed into inaction.
The consequences of this have not only left many of us feeling powerless, but also plunged too many of the world's most vulnerable into greater need, wondering when they will find safety, security and hope.
That's why we want to give you the opportunity to join us in restoring hope and rebuilding communities of welcome all across our nation!
For over 40 years, World Relief has welcomed, advocated for, and helped integrate over 400,000 immigrants in vulnerable situations to communities all across our nation. For the past 40 years, we have been rebuilding lives throughout Texas. Our work is guided by the belief that refugees and immigrants play a crucial role in our society and are critical to our nation's stability and development, as well as to our national character.
Now, as we prepare for the refugee cap to increase to 125,000 next year, we enter into a new moment in America. One in which we urgently need your help to rebuild our capacity to welcome, love, and support these brave families.
