Church World Service

Church World Service works with partners to eradicate hunger and poverty and to promote peace and justice around the world.  Together we reach out to neighbors in need near and far--not with a hand out, but a hand up.  So, if you're looking to help build a better world—a world where there's enough for all—you've come to the right place!

Around the world, Church World Service supports sustainable grassroots development, disaster relief, and refugee assistance, and we educate and advocate on hunger-related issues.  In the U.S., we help communities respond to disasters, resettle refugees, promote fair national and international policies, and provide educational resources. 

We invite you to join our network of local and global caring through participation. VIsit Church World Service (https://cwsglobal.org/) for more information about their programs. 

What BCGV does

BCGV members respond periodically to CWS calls for specific aid in emergencies around the world.  Many members make CWS their primary giving channel because CWS is non-partisan and non-denominational.

How you can serve

Since emergencies cannot be predicted, you can become aware of CWS specific needs by staying close to a local outpost such as BCGV.
