In March 1946, CLWR was created by a group of dedicated Lutherans to provide vital emergency assistance in war-torn Europe and to facilitate the sponsorship of refugees displaced by the Second World War. This year is our 70th anniversary as a leading Canadian-based humanitarian agency whose work continues to have a substantial impact on the lives of many thousands of poor and vulnerable people around the world. We thank you for your support and partnership in making a difference in the lives of people around the world!
This year’s Advent calendar features stories about the life-changing work you are supporting. You’ll be introduced to some of the local and global partners we work with and be inspired by stories of Canadian Lutherans who make this work possible. We wish you a blessed Advent season as you prepare to celebrate the birth of our Saviour.
