About Canadian Lutheran World Relief:

Founded in 1946, Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) is inspired by God’s love for humanity and challenges the causes and responds to the consequences of human suffering and poverty. It offers Canadians opportunities to serve the needs of others. CLWR serves the world’s poor and marginalized through community development, refugee resettlement, emergency relief and humanitarian aid shipment programs.

CLWR delivers community development programming through church priority projects, Canadian Foodgrains Bank projects and DFATD-supported programs in Africa, Asia and South America. Through emergency relief, CLWR addressed three crises in F2014- aid to over 20,000 people affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, help for Syrian refugees in Jordan, and assistance to those impacted by flooding in southern Alberta. CLWR, through its WE CARE program, distributed 13,710 quilts and blankets, 4,082 baby bundles and 5,973 kits, worth over $500k in total, to the needy in Africa. The refugee resettlement program assists groups in submitting refugee applications and preparing for the arrival of new immigrants to Canada. Through this program, CLWR settled 82 refugees in Canada during F2014. CLWR sent 20 young volunteers to Lima, Peru and 38 people to Palestine and Israel through its International Volunteer Service program.
