What We Do

Hunger

HUNGER AND MALNUTRITION

Food security occurs when people have consistent access to sufficient safe and nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life. We're working to make this a reality. >>

EMERGENCIES

CWS provides assistance to communities impacted by disaster – and stays for the long term to ensure that vulnerable persons recover and are prepared for the future. >>

REFUGEES

More than 15.5 million people around the world are refugees – uprooted by persecution and armed conflict. CWS assists refugees and displaced persons in many ways. >>

IMMIGRATION

A growing number of CWS offices and affiliates provide immigration legal services, including assistance with travel documents, petitions for family members and more. >>

CHILDREN

Children are precious. The first 1,000 days of a child's life are especially important, as they're the most vulnerable to malnutrition, unsafe water and other threats. >>

WATER

More than one billion people lack access to safe water – and more than 2.1 million of them die each year from waterborne diseases. We're helping change that. >>
