Lutheran World Relief (LWR)

Natural and human-made disasters affect hundreds of millions of people each year, and the number of people at risk growing by 70-80 million annually.

The world’s poorest suffer most acutely, since they have the fewest resources to prepare for a crisis and to rebuild afterward.

LWR’s emergency operations are designed to address the most urgent and basic needs of these communities — including women and children, who are often the most vulnerable — while also promoting sustainable recovery and building resilience to future disasters.

Here at Trinity, we support the LWR Mission in a number of ways:

LWR Quilters
LWR Kits and Quilts
Baskets of Promise
