A Global Faith Leader in Action

Fragility, Conflict and Humanitarian Emergencies Responses
Over the last two years, the world has witnessed new humanitarian crises emerging in countries including Ukraine, Haiti, Ethiopia and Myanmar. Other places, such as Colombia and South Sudan, continue to see escalating conflict, while the COVID pandemic brought an unexpected, multifaceted and unprecedented crisis for the global community.
As a faith-based organization (FBO), the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) is operating in and around all these crises, either through its member churches, or through its World Service country programs (or sometimes both).
The key role that FBOs play in these humanitarian emergencies is increasingly recognized and accepted by major international organizations such as the UNHCR, the World Health Organization and the World Bank.
This online event will shed light on the work of the LWF and other FBOs in responding to crises and supporting vulnerable populations during and after emergencies. It will showcase LWF’s latest activities in Ukraine and bring together key actors to offer insights on how FBOs are increasingly cooperating to respond and support those most in need.
