About ELCA World Hunger
ELCA World Hunger improves the lives of people in need in the United States and around the world by providing immediate relief for people by assisting whole communities through long-term, sustainable development to help alleviate chronic hunger and poverty; advocating for justice by changing laws and systems; and educating members of the ELCA in awareness of issues relating to hunger, poverty and justice.
Your Gifts at work around the world:
Over 1.1 billion people in the world have no access to safe drinking water and 2.5 billion people lack proper sanitation. ELCA provides real ways to help from providing water jugs for transporting clean water to digging wells to bring clean water to a village.
ELCA provides seeds and gardening tools to establish community gardens and trains community leaders in agriculture techniques.
ELCA provides mosquito nets for families in malaria-prone areas, health and dental care for children in orphanages and money for medical services, doctors and essential medicines for people living in remote areas.
Your Gifts at work close to home:
Here in United States, ELCA World Hunger helps neighbors close to home who struggle with hunger and poverty. ELCA helps low-income seniors with nutritious food and supportive services to improve the overall health of at-risk seniors. Just a few other examples include an ELCA program in Ohio that empowers disadvantaged youth to create social justice in the world. And in Montana, ELCA provides support to families dealing with emergency situations.
ELCA is at work everywhere – around the world, in your city and in your neighborhood. Join Mindekirken is supporting these important and life-giving mission projects.
