Church World Service works with partners to eradicate hunger and poverty and to promote peace and justice around the world. Together we reach out to neighbors in need --not with a hand out, but a hand up. Around the world, Church World Service supports sustainable grassroots development, disaster relief, and refugee assistance, and we educate and advocate on hunger-related issues. In the U.S., we help communities respond to disasters, resettle refugees, promote fair national and international policies, and provide educational resources. We invite you to join our network of local and global caring by participating in CROP Hunger Walks, the Blankets+ program, and the CWS Kits program.
