World Relief Canada (WRCanada) is an international relief and development (R&D) organization, which partners with Christian networks around the world. With these partners, WRCanada works to build communities in post disaster situations and meet the needs of people caught in the hopeless cycle of poverty.
Rather than establishing its own infrastructure within communities, WRCanada directs funds to local programs, ensuring that local leaders are central to the planning and implementation of projects. Such collaboration empowers people on the ground, promotes dignity within communities, and maximizes the impact of donor resources.
Assistance is provided to individuals and communities in need, regardless of race or spiritual beliefs with the intent of cultivating hope and enabling sustainable community growth.
