Building on over 75 years of experience, Lutheran World Relief tackles global poverty by helping people adapt to the challenges that threaten their livelihoods and well-being. Lutheran World Relief works with people based
on need, regardless of race, religion, or nationality, and does not evangelize. LWR provides aid in emergencies and helps families restore their lives. LWR partners with communities to build and grow rural economies. LWR breaks 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
the project’s end.
Today, Lutheran World Relief operates in East and West Africa, Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East, helping some of the world’s poorest communities build the resilience they need to thrive. In November 2020, LWR was in Honduras when 2 hurricanes hit the country within two weeks. LWR responded with emergency aid, including personal care kits, and long-term support to rebuild homes and livelihoods. LWR school kits helped
displaced children in northern Iraq and Syria continue their education in areas where school supplies were limited. To read more about Lutheran World Relief go to: http://www. lwr.org
At Grace, we support Lutheran World Relief with our donations of school and personal care kits. In 2020, we sent 60 school kits and over 100 face masks to LWR. This year our goal is to send 75 school kits and 30
personal care kits. You can help by donating selected items (See Lutheran World Relief Kits in the Grace Notes or August newsletter) or by making a financial donation to Grace Lutheran Church; memo: LWR.
