World Relief

Founded in 1944 as a Church response to the devastation in Europe at the end of the Second World War, World Relief is a faith-based international relief and development organization that serves over 5 million people each year in more than 13 countries. As the humanitarian arm of the National Association of Evangelicals, World Relief practices principles of transformational development to empower local churches in the United States and around the world so they can serve the vulnerable in their communities.

World Relief believes the Church is the most diverse social network on the planet and plays a pivotal role in standing with the sick, the financially poor, the widow, the orphan, the alien, the displaced, the hungry and the marginalized. More than 95% of World Relief’s workforce is comprised of volunteers, coming mostly from local churches in each country.

Headquartered in Baltimore, World Relief’s twenty five offices around the United States focus domestic efforts on anti-human trafficking, refugee resettlement, and immigrant services. Internationally, World Relief five primary areas: disaster response, community health, economic development, agriculture and peace-building.
