Church World Service

CWS has a mandate to improve lives for the most marginalized and vulnerable people in the world. They approach this as holistically as possible. They understand that policies and prejudices keep the world’s poor and vulnerable in a cycle of injustice and poverty. So they advocate for changes in policy, and help those in which they serve to ensure their voices are heard. CWS was created as a response to an emergency. They recognize the world’s poor are most vulnerable to disaster, and we work both to prevent and to respond to calamities.
