The Lutheran World Federation

Lutheran World Federation works together as a communion of churches to respond to people in emergency situations, with a focus on refugees, returnees, internally displaced people, their host communities, and communities at risk. They support local communities in sustainable development efforts to achieve a life with dignity and full enjoyment of their rights. LWF equips member churches to engage in diaconal action, collaborate with ecumenical partners, interfaith actors, and religious leaders on issues of human dignity, justice, and peace, and strengthen efforts for climate justice. They also strengthen local and global advocacy to promote human rights and protect the rights of marginalized communities.
