LUTHERAN WORLD RELIEF (LWR) opened its regional office in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1983 to respond to the frequent food crises facing East Africa. LWR’s Kenya program office is also located in Nairobi. Today, LWR collaborates with local community-based organizations, church partners, and national and county government departments on programs to improve food security, livelihoods of communities, climate change adaptation and to respond to emergencies. LWR also maintains a long-standing partnership with Lutheran World Federation/Department for World Service (LWF/WS) to respond to the ongoing needs of refugees in the Kakuma and Dadaab refugee camps. LWR is active in the ACT Alliance, a global alliance of churches and related organizations focusing on long-term development and humanitarian assistance.
