For more than 50 years, Tearfund has found partnering with local churches to be one of the most effective and sustainable ways to help communities lift themselves out of poverty. This World Humanitarian Day, we want to celebrate how churches around the world are supporting people affected by humanitarian emergencies.
Equipped to respond
Local churches have often built long-term relationships within their neighbourhoods and, because of this, are more likely to be trusted than an external agency. They also know the strengths and needs of their communities best. That’s why Tearfund equips local churches with training and resources so that they are ready to respond to crises.
