Both organizations (Lutheran Disaster Response and Lutheran World Relief) are trusted organizations that work closely with local groups affected by disasters. LWR is a world leader among Non-Governmental Agencies (NGOs) and is usually one of the first relief organizations to get into disaster areas and one of the last to leave.

Haiti Earthquake Relief

A magnitude 7.0 earthquake rocked the island country of Haiti on Tuesday, January 12. Buildings are destroyed, the search for survivors is intense and the streets of Haiti are filled with people in shock and searching for loved ones among the rubble. ELCA Disaster Response partners already in Haiti have survived the quake and are working to serve the people of Haiti.

Your help is needed today to bring immediate relief and continued hope for our brothers and sisters in Haiti. About 3 million people, one-third of Haiti’s population, were affected by this earthquake.

100% of the money you donate to the ELCA Disaster Relief in Haiti program will go to relief. Because the administration of the Disaster Relief agency is funded in other ways everything you donate goes to helping those who need it most right now.
