A project of Lutheran Community Foundation
We work to help Lutheran World Relief (LWR) continue life-saving work around "forgotten emergencies" even after media attention fades.
Some emergencies, like the South Asia tsunami and the violence in Darfur, capture the world's attention. For a brief time, we glimpse inside the lives of our global neighbors in the midst of the most difficult of circumstances.
Through this initiative, the Foundation collaborates with Lutheran World Relief (LWR) to continue life-saving work around the world with determination and dedication, remaining committed to "forgotten emergencies" even after media attention fades. Beyond working to meet basic needs, such as food and clean water, LWR works in partnership with our global neighbors to increase their capacity for change that is lasting and meaningful.
