Who We Are

World Relief Canada


Strengthen, support and equip
It’s almost impossible to imagine that a billion people in our world live on $2.50 a day or less. That 1 in 9 go to bed hungry every night – half of whom are children. That we are bearing witness to a refugee crisis unlike anything we’ve seen before.

Rooted in God’s deep love for the world, World Relief is putting faith into action to stop hunger, injustice and poverty for a million people by 2020- one community, one family, one person at a time.

In some of the world’s most difficult places, we come alongside and help people meet their own needs and build better futures for themselves and for their children. We strengthen, support and equip people to realize their full potential to prosper and thrive.

This year we’re funding and supporting 11 projects in 10 countries across Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Middle East.

We’re working with small-scale farmers so that they can grow or afford to buy enough nutritious food all year round, no matter what the weather or economic climate. We’re providing shelter, food and basic essentials and services in times of conflict and disaster, and we’re fighting poverty with microfinance and social enterprise.

By partnering with people like you, and local, national and international organizations who share our values, we’re able to combine the exciting exchange of knowledge, inventiveness, expertise and skills of local people, our Christian partners and our staff to bring about transformational, long-term and sustainable change in the lives of those most in need.

We are the hands and feet, standing together against hunger, injustice and poverty. This is our faith in action. Join us as we make a real difference.

Why We Do What We Do

Our Mission & Vision


Mission
World Relief’s mission is to respond to the relief and development needs of the world’s poor in the name of Jesus Christ. We do this through a global network of Christian organizations, and in partnership Canadian and overseas Churches.

Vision
World Relief’s vision is to see you responding, with compassion and justice, to the needs of the poor, oppressed and suffering in ways that bring healing and long-term and sustainable positive transformation in the world’s poorest communities.

What We Stand For

Our Core Values


Economic Justice
Recognizing God’s care for all people, we are committed to development of economic opportunities for the poor of less developed countries such that they have sustainable access to the basic necessities of life.

Transformation
Believing God has called us to bring the love and hope of Christ to all people, especially the poor; we engage in relief and development programs, through a global network of Christian organizations, for the purpose of enabling economic, social and spiritual transformation in the lives of the poor.

Empowerment & Equity
Recognizing all people as image bearers of God, we are committed to the strengthening of civil society where all receive equitable treatment regardless of gender, race and religion. We seek to support programs that move beyond the meeting of basic needs and provide opportunities for economic and social empowerment.

Environmental Integrity
Recognizing the earth as God’s creation to be cared for, and maintained for the benefit of all, we are committed to assessments, programming, training, and practices that positively impact the environment.

Mutual Interdependence
Recognizing the equality and communal nature of God’s kingdom, we are committed to working in mutually interdependent relationships with our indigenous partners, other Northern and Southern organizations, the Canadian government, and our supporting constituency including individuals, churches and the agricultural, professional, and business communities.

Financial Accountability
Recognizing our financial support as being from God, we are committed to be accountable for the wise use of the resources entrusted to us. This is to be achieved through professional, focused and strategically selected programming, results-based management, and cost-effectiveness.

God Listens. God Hears Us.

Please Pray With Us
