Lutheran World Relief:

Lutheran World Relief works in most corners of the world to provide food and clothing to the poor. Efforts are being made to eradicate malaria in Africa where a child dies of that disease every 60 second. Working though Lutheran churches in Africa, the ELCA Malaria Campaign is uniquely positioned to provide mosquito nets, insecticides, medication, health care, education and more to help eliminate deaths from this disease—for good. In addition, the OSLC WELCA contributed 82 quilts and 37 health kits (11 by Miriam Circle and 26 by the Able Saints Class). This Lutheran agency works in most corners of the world with the poor.  Emphasis is placed on the agricultural development, water systems, housing, education, etc.  They respond to natural disasters around the world.
