Lutheran World Relief
February 9, 2011
There are a lot of faith-informed organizations out there that seem more committed to providing flashy relief and winning converts than actually investing themselves into the populations they serve. From what I've seen, Lutheran World Relief is dedicated to long-term development, not merely showing up to places that are in the news then abandoning them once the media attention has passed. The staff members I have met are people with real heart and concern; it's always great to know organizations like this exist. They also provide very meaningful and useful information on the work they're doing in the countries; their blog is a pleasure to read.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
reading about the work they've done, talking to staff members, and talking to people in development who have observed LWR's work.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give them more money so they can expand their services.
Donor & Attended informational sessions and spoke with staff members.
