Welcome to World Relief Memphis!
World Relief has placed refugees in the Nashville area starting in the early 1980s. In 2012 the Memphis affiliate office open its doors to resettlement. Our mission and prayer is that the local Church will embrace refugees who have been forced to leave their country, culture, friends, and families for safety. World Relief empower volunteers to help meet their physical, relational, and spiritual needs.
Who is a Refugee?
A refugee is someone who is threatened by ethnic, religious, or political persecution. Over 15 million people have gathered what belongings they could carry and escaped to another country. Many have lived in camps for over 10 years, waiting to go home.Some refugees are invited by the U.S. government to make another, life changing move: to rebuild their lives in the U.S.
