Our programs

We help and support children and their families in the US and 16 countries in Africa, Latin America, Asia, and Eastern Europe at risk of illness, food insecurity, poverty, war, or natural disaster. World Emergency Relief provides practical help and empowers local organizations, hospitals and churches to meet current needs and develop long-term solutions to problems. Our focus is to combat hunger, provide medical assistance, improve access to safe water, advocate for equity in education, and respond to natural disasters.
