World Renew believes that educating church communities about Christ’s call to respond to the needs of people who suffer from poverty, hunger, and disaster can transform perspectives and be the catalyst for change — here in North America and around the world.
Compelled by God’s deep passion for justice & mercy, we join communities around the world to renew hope, reconcile lives, and restore creation.
World Renew staff and volunteers come alongside communities in 30 countries around the world to help bring about renewal. Through partnerships with more than 130 churches and community organizations, local people are trained to be leaders in their own communities. Thus World Renew, together with partners and local leaders, is able to address major issues like illiteracy, hunger, malnutrition, unemployment, HIV/AIDS, child mortality, and injustice.
DISASTER RESPONSE & REHABILITATION
When disasters strike, World Renew responds to the urgent needs that arise. In North America, this often includes clearing debris, assessing needs, training local leaders, and repairing and rebuilding damaged homes. Internationally, it includes providing and distributing emergency food, water, shelter, and other supplies. It also often involves reconstruction of homes and livelihoods. World Renew's ability to respond to disaster is enhanced and greatly supported by a number of strategic partnerships and alliances.
World Renew reaches out to people in North America and around the world in an effort to connect them to ministry, deepen their understanding of global issues, and encourage them to act and advocate on behalf of those in need.
