CLWR invites your support for the following special appeals.
Augusta Victoria Hospital
CLWR assists the Augusta Victoria Hospital (AVH), which is administered by The Lutheran World Federation, in meeting its mandate to provide medical service to those living in East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza. AVH primarily serves the Palestinian population but offers care to all regardless of creed, religion, race, nationality, gender or ability to pay. Approximately 20 per cent of patients are refugees. It provides many specialized services that are not easily accessible or that are unavailable in other hospitals in the occupied Palestinian Territories.
Grow Hope–Share the Harvest
Grow Hope–Share the Harvest is a new opportunity for Canadians who live in urban or suburban areas to become “virtual farmers” by sponsoring an acre that will be farmed to raise funds for Canadian Lutheran World Relief’s (CLWR) account at Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Through Grow Hope, non-farmers can help farmers grow crops and learn more about what is involved in growing food at the same time. Your partnership will grow hope for people who don’t have enough to eat—the hope for a better future for themselves and their families.
Intern Support Fund
Build on CLWR Executive Director Robert Granke’s legacy of life-changing leadership—nurture future leaders of CLWR by contributing to the Intern Support Fund which will be established in Robert’s name to support interns preparing for a future of humanitarian service.
Seeds of Hope
Your gift will provide small-scale farmers in Ethiopia with the life-giving water they need to grow healthy and nutritious food. Irrigation canals will be built and connected to their plots of land. These canals will provide water for them today, tomorrow and years to come.
Syrian Refugee Relief
Through The Lutheran World Federation (LWF), CLWR is providing support to Syrian refugees living in urban areas in northern Jordan and in the Za’atari refugee camp. Donations will be used where needed most. For example, funds could provide clothing, personal and household hygiene supplies, and food vouchers for the most vulnerable people. It could support peacebuilding initiatives and vocational training for women. It could rehabilitate schools and provide school supplies to children, or it could help provide psychosocial support to youth and young adults.
