O Lord, God of my salvation,
when, at night, I cry out in your presence,
let my prayer come before you;
incline your ear to my cry.

We are monitoring the effects of Hurricane Irma in Haiti, where we have active projects. We are also coordinating with partners to assess needs in Cuba and the Caribbean. Gifts to LWR in support of Hurricane Irma will be used in Haiti until needs there are met. Gifts given after that time will be used where needs are greatest. Thank you for your support
Since LWR’s founding, our work has focused on international humanitarian needs. In order to provide the most effective response and have the greatest impact, we continue to focus exclusively on developing countries overseas.
