LUTHERAN WORLD RELIEF (LWR) has been working in the Philippines since the 1960s, reaching rural communities struggling to overcome poverty and marginalization. LWR’s current programming supports communities in Mindanao — the southernmost major island in the Philippines, where chronic armed conflict and limited opportunities for economic improvement have led to high levels of poverty — and the Visayas, an area severely affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan in 2013.
