Ecumenical and Interfaith partners

As a founding member of ACT Alliance, LWF World Service continues to play an active role with other members on the ground, in country forums, with regional offices, and within the Geneva secretariat. We strive to respond to emergencies through ACT mechanisms in a coordinated, timely, and effective manner. In accord with the Memorandum of Understanding with Islamic Relief Worldwide (renewed in 2017), and the Joint Declaration of Intent with Caritas Internationalis (2016), we aim to strengthen our relationship with the Islamic community and Roman Catholic Church to create sustainable change in the lives of those who suffer from poverty, disaster, and marginalization.
