Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

World Help aims to serve the physical and spiritual needs of people in impoverished communities around the world. Millions of hurting people around the world are waiting for help and hope to arrive: A young girl trapped in the sex industry is afraid to dream of a better future; a family caught in a war zone prays for food and medicine; a persecuted believer lies in a prison cell wondering if anyone cares; and an entire community is perpetually sick due to lack of clean drinking water. The needs are overwhelming, but the potential to reach out in love and transform a single life is incredible. By partnering with compassionate supporters, we believe our mission of bringing physical help and spiritual transformation will impact millions of impoverished people across the globe.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Clean Water Program

Dirty water causes diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid, and even death. Without water, people can’t do their jobs, and farmers can’t grow crops.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Adults

Child sponsorship truly changes a child’s present circumstances and future possibilities. When a child is sponsored, he or she is not only provided with HELP and HOPE, but also are builds and nurtures a personal relationship through letter writing with their sponsor. Sponsorship provides a boy or girl around the world with help for today and hope for tomorrow.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

During times of natural disasters or crisis, World Help provides food, shelter, blankets, water, and supplies to those who have lost everything. Our objective is to bring help and hope, as well as support in beginning the process of rebuilding.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Economically disadvantaged people

War, violence, environmental disasters, and extreme poverty are just a few of the many factors driving today’s Global Refugee Crisis. It is estimated that 28,300 people are forced to leave their homes — every single day. There are more refugees today than any other time since World War II.

World Help aims to provide support to displaced people in the form of emergency supplies such as: healthy meals, clean water, medical supplies, hygiene kits, clothing, and blankets.

Population(s) Served
Immigrants and migrants
Economically disadvantaged people

Since the very beginning, World Help has been passionate about getting the Word of God into the hands of those who need it. It reveals God’s plan for salvation and introduces a person to Jesus Christ. It is a source of true light in a world filled with darkness.

Population(s) Served
Adults

World Help believes of the most strategic ways to share the Gospel in unreached communities is by equipping Christian nationals with the resources they need to tell their peers about Christ's love.

Population(s) Served

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

World Help believes in holistic development and sustainable health. We seek to accomplish three core things in our mission: 1. We begin with the end in mind, equipping individuals with the skills and resources they need to contribute to thriving communities moving them from poverty to empowerment, from despair to hope. 2. We partner with nationals and local churches that are deeply attentive to the needs of their people. 3. At the center of each of our global programs is the desire to point people to the love of God.

We are funded by thousands of passionate and faithful supporters and churches to fund transformational programs around the globe. To implement these programs, we partner with nationals and local churches in various nations that are deeply attentive to the needs of their people.

World Help fulfills this strategy by investing in sustainable programs that enable individuals and communities to thrive physically and spiritually while building lasting change for generations to come. http://worldhelp.net/blueprint/
