World Relief Canada works with local network of Christians and agencies around the world to meet the needs of people living in poverty. We provide integrated recovery/emergency intervention, income generation through microfinance, village-led savings, agricultural training and improvement and primary health care programs. We provide emergency assistance to victims in the form of food, shelter, medicines and other necessities. Through Canadian Foodgrains Bank, we deliver food and food security programs. We equip local leaders through training in implementing indigenous programs.
