Program:Darfur Disaster Response
Budget: $480,000
Category: International, Foreign Affairs & National Security
Population Served: General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

The people in this arid region face violent militia attacks and severe food and water shortages.  In West Darfur, where a high percentage of the population is undernourished and underweight, it’s both desirable and healthy to put on some extra pounds.  Mothers bring their young children to our 13 feeding centers where the children are weighed, examined and given supplementary food as needed.  We don’t send mothers away helpless.  We teach them how to fend off malnutrition by preparing nutritious meals from inexpensive locally available ingredients. Our centers provide a food supplement known as corn soya blend (CSB) – a flour mix that the local people use to make porridge called asida, a dietary staple.  Mixed with oil and sugar, CSB provides crucial nutritional support to undernourished children under 5 and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.  “I gained weight and started feeling strong…it helped me give birth to a healthy baby,” says 25-year-old Shamila. World Relief and our partners are working hard to strengthen more than 11,000 vulnerable households in the districts of Azirni, Um Tagouk and Sanidadi.  Our goal is to build stability through interventions aimed at boosting the nutritional status of households, providing safe drinking water, improving hygiene, and protecting the health of women and children

Program:Peacebuilding Program - World Relief Congo
Budget: $300,000
Category: International, Foreign Affairs & National Security
Population Served: Ethnic/Racial Minorities -- Other Specified Group

Program Description:

Considering the magnitude and frequencies of the problem of conflict in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, World Relief Congo has since 2011 undertaken a Peacebuilding pilot project in Rutshuru territory, North Kivu province, to empower church leaders, local authorities, and local communities to mitigate, prevent, and resolve differences that arise among their people.The Peacebuilding program in Eastern Congo involves the following activities:   1. Empowerment of the church and community-based organizations to be salt and light for peace in a troubled region.This means mobilizing the local church for peace in its entities such as women’s committees, youth committees, and bodies of local leaders.Trainings for these groups will enhance Peacebuilding in their communities.   2. Raising awareness of leaders and populations about conflicts prevailing – on their status, causes and consequences – and motivating those groups to do what they can to bring peace in their homes and surroundings.   3. Equipping communities with a peace maintenance system whereby they design and own Peacebuilding mechanisms including the reclamation and enhancement of intra and inter-ethnic ways they previously used to effect peace.   4. Establishing structures for peace, Village Peace Committees (VPCs) with voluntary respected leaders of integrity, who interact at the grassroots level in villages, localities and groupements to ensure peacemaking.
Program:Anti-Trafficking - Cambodia

Category: International, Foreign Affairs & National Security
Population Served: Ethnic/Racial Minorities -- Other Specified Group

Program Description:

In 2008, World Relief launched an initiative to reduce and prevent the exploitation and abuse of women and children in Cambodia. It is designed to address the root causes of trafficking of vulnerable adults, adolescents and children through community-level training. The program seeks to stop trafficking before it starts by educating communities and church and village leaders about the dangers of trafficking and the ways in which the community can work together to prevent it. It empowers village members to respond to potential traffickers and teaches them how to seek safe employment when they migrate from the village for work.

Balance Sheet Fiscal Year Ending September 30, 2015

Total Note: The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities also must be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
