What We Do

Disaster Risk Reduction & Emergency Preparedness and Response

As conflicts and emergencies unfold, the LWF is proud to partner with communities to ensure their right to human security and protection.

We rapidly respond to save lives as disasters unfold and continue to assist vulnerable communities through recovery and rehabilitation.

In addition, we help communities to pro-actively reduce risks and prepare before disasters strike.

Sustainable Livelihoods

In all our work, we seek to uphold the rights of the poor and oppressed.

We work alongside communities to secure equal access to food, water, and economically sustainable livelihoods in harmony with creation.

We integrate climate adaptation into our efforts, and help communities assess their risk.

Community-led Action for Justice and Peace

With our global presence and impact, the LWF is uniquely positioned to advocate with and on behalf of vulnerable communities.

We believe we have the dual role of both accompanying communities in grassroots human rights advocacy and also connecting local knowledge with national and international advocacy efforts.
