World Help was born out of a sincere desire to help those in need, not only spiritually, but physically. Founded in 1991 by Vernon Brewer as a nonprofit Christian organization, World Help began providing God’s Word to the spiritually starved nations of Eastern Europe.
New and ongoing crises in the world demand that we are ready to act at a moment's notice. Whether it be war, natural disasters, famine, poverty, or other catastrophes, our immediate response to the humanitarian need is crucial to saving lives. By partnering with nationals already on the ground, we can identify areas that are the most desperate, allowing us to meet very specific needs in record time. We work to ensure communities have access to the basics: water, food, medicine, shelter, clothing, and supplies. As needs are met, individuals and families can begin restoring their lives. Beyond meeting the immediate needs, we remain embedded within affected regions, rebuilding lives and communities whenever possible. This is a long-term process involving carefully planned and customized infrastructure programming. Our ultimate goal is to establish self-sufficient communities that have access to the Word of God and understand His message of hope.
World Help works with highly cultivated teams of indigenous national Christian partners in some of the darkest regions of the world to be the hands, feet, and heart of Jesus on the ground. Our focus is on saving lives, meeting urgent needs through aid and relief projects, investing in long-term sustainable transformation through agriculture initiatives, education and vocational training, building and equipping medical facilities, clean-water projects, and providing sponsorships for desperately needy children, just to name a few. Our desire is to effectively rebuild communities and fostering dignity-laying a foundation of growth for years to come.Community Development: Temporarily satisfying basic needs alone doesn't create genuine well-being or continued prosperity. Giving physical aid without developmental solutions can actually foster an attitude of dependence that can often be detrimental to long-term progress. World Help is committed to changing lives from the ground up through our Village Transformation initiative. When physical, emotional, and spiritual needs are all met simultaneously, real transformation can begin. Together, these three elements are the foundation of self-sufficiency and empowerment.
World Help's Children of the World International Children's choir was founded out of the desire to share the untold story of millions of orphaned and disadvantaged children around the world. Composed of children from our Child Sponsorship Programs internationally, their message presents the staggering realities of poverty but also the hope of change through advocacy, investment, and true compassion in action. Their performances, which include powerful mediums of song, dance, spoken word, and creative media, are designed to educate and inspire audiences across the United States to step out in faith and rescue a child in desperate need.
