Founded by Lutherans in the United States at the end of World War II, grounded in Lutheran theology and building on decades of experience, Lutheran World Relief tackles global poverty by helping people adapt to the challenges that threaten their livelihoods and well-being.
They work with people based on need, regardless of race, religion or nationality and we do not evangelize.
They provide aid in emergencies and help families restore their lives. They partner with communities to build and grow rural economies. They break the cycle of poverty, so families and communities can thrive.
Their goal is to help people build self‐sufficiency and create new community‐owned approaches to problem‐solving that will last long after our projects end.
