Lutheran World Relief


Development projects of Lutheran World Relief focus on issues at the root causes of poverty. These debilitating causes tend to domino into more and more problems that trap people in poverty. By the same token, attacking just one of these issues can help break the cycle, making people’s lives better and freeing them from suffering in many ways.



From Daniel Speckhard, President & CEO of Lutheran World Relief,
I write to you today in the midst of a continuing crisis. Families in Syria are struggling under the weight of ongoing conflict. Even as violence and fighting continues, many have little or nothing to help them survive.
Lutheran World Relief is mounting a response in Eastern Ghouta, an area of Syria that has been largely cut off from humanitarian aid. We need your help.
Will you give a gift today to help us reach families with essential supplies they desperately need?
Your gift today will truly help some of the most vulnerable people in the world right now. Please give as generously as you can, and please continue to pray with us for families in Syria, and elsewhere in the Middle East.
