World Relief is the humanitarian assistance arm of the National Association of Evangelicals, working overseas and in the United States. Since 1948, World Relief, working with community volunteers, has helped countless victims of war and natural disasters. Internationally, World Relief works in some of the poorest countries with mother & child health clinics, agriculture and micro-enterprise development. In order to fulfill our mission statement: to empower the local church to serve the most vulnerable, World Relief seeks to develop opportunities for people with a heart for serving others less fortunate than themselves.
