World Hunger 2016-2017

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!"—2 Corinthians 5:17

World Renew invites you to participate in the 2016-17 World Hunger Campaign...

Changing the Story!

In many parts of the world, people’s stories begin in a place of hardship. Illiteracy, and inadequate health care. Hunger, and poverty are a regular part of life.

Through God’s grace, people’s hard work, and support like yours, however, many of these men, women, and children are taking steps to improve their lives.

Every day, World Renew serves people who are rewriting their stories:

  • from poverty to plenty

  • from illiterate to educated

  • from victims of disaster to empowered survivors

This change is not just material. Jesus is the greatest story changer of all. He turned fishermen into disciples, fallen women into followers, and persecutors into missionaries.

That’s why, as World Renew seeks to help people in need, we work through churches and Christian partners in communities around the world to tackle poverty, disaster, and injustice.

Many men and women around the world have been shaped by stories about their poverty. They may believe that poverty is their destiny, that human rights and social equity don’t apply to them, or that their dreams and aspirations are not important.

As people participate with World Renew’s development, disaster response,and justice programs in their community, they begin to accept  their value as children of God, recognizing their God-given talents and abilities, tapping into their potential as God’s image bearers, and becoming equipped to change their own stories for the long-term.

This fall, World Renew invites you to join us in changing the story. During the autumn World Hunger Campaign, culminating on World Hunger Sunday, please give generously of your time, prayers, talents, and financial gifts to bless others. World Renew will use your gifts to combat poverty, disaster, and injustice around the world in Jesus’ name.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact World Renew at 1-800-552-7972 (US) or 1-800-730-3490 (Canada).
