Welcome to World Relief Memphis!

World Relief Memphis began resetteling refugees in 2012. 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 empowers volunteers to help meet refugees' physical, relational, and spiritual needs. We are amazed by the courage of the people we serve.

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 into another country. Many have lived in camps for over 10 years while waiting to go home. Some refugees are invited by the U.S. government to make another life changing move to the U.S. rebuild their lives in safety.
