Disaster Response

During time of flood, drought or other disaster, the ELCT seeks to respond to the needs of those who suffer.


Food for work
: These people built the road during disaster (drought).
They were paid food at the end of the week


Bringing hope: Sometimes life seems to be beyond hope.
At times like this, the ELCT seeks to provide support.

One of the ELCT's major disaster responses is through Tanganyika Christian Refugee Service (TCRS), a joint outreach of the ELCT and Lutheran World Federation.
