    Lutherans Respond

    Lutheran Disaster Response brings God’s hope, healing and renewal to people whose
    lives have been disrupted by disasters in the United States and around the world. When the dust settles and the headlines change, we stay to provide ongoing assistance to those in need.

    Lutheran Disaster Response has a long and strong history responding and working with disasters, and their affiliates are presently active throughout the world, collaborating with local community leaders and officials to initiate the proper immediate responses and the long-term recovery efforts. Disaster recovery efforts can take years, and Lutheran Disaster Response is there to accompany survivors through every phase of a disaster.

    Your gifts ensure that our global Lutheran church will be able to provide help and hope for those left homeless or otherwise affected by this disaster for years to come.

    Gifts to Lutheran Disaster Response can be designated for specific disaster relief initiatives, or undesignated and allow LDR to utilize those funds where most needed. Designated gifts will be used entirely (100 percent) for specified disaster until the response is complete. Together, we can help provide immediate and long-lasting support. Give today to support the needs in this response and others like it.

    What you can do: 

    Please pray for the people who have been affected and are in the path of Hurricane Harvey. May God's healing presence give them peace and hope in their time of need.

    To make a gift, visit LDR's Disaster Response web page where you can make an undesignated gift or select a specific disaster relief initiative and make a designated gift.

  • URGENT: Families in Crisis Need Your Help

    Many are horrified by the crisis that is unfolding in Ukraine. In an emergency, every second counts. That’s why it’s crucial that Lutheran World Relief is ready to help.

    When emergencies arise, it is your compassion and generosity that enables LWR to quickly deliver food, shelter, emergency supplies and other lifesaving aid to families in crisis, and the LWR team has been working nonstop to determine where help is most urgently needed – but they cannot respond to this crisis without your help.

    Your gift to the World of Good Fund provides families facing crisis with emergency food, clean water, safe shelter, medical supplies and more. Your love will reach neighbors in Ukraine and around the world with the lifesaving care they need.

    Will you reach out to families today with a gift to our World of Good Emergency Fund? Your gifts are a godsend, and I pray you will rush an emergency gift today.
