Humanitarian Assistance

When a natural disaster hits or wide-spread conflict and war affects vulnerable populations, Canadian Lutheran World Relief enables Canadians to help quickly. Emergency relief work is an integral part of CLWR’s mandate since its beginning. By working with partners on the ground in affected areas, CLWR can provide immediate life-saving assistance. When responding to emergencies, CLWR’s commitment goes beyond immediate needs to helping rebuild lives and livelihoods.
