Equipping and supporting effective ministry among refugees

IAFR Training

A Movement of Hope

Let’s make a difference together!

There are over 65 million forcibly displaced children, women and men in the world. That's 1 in every 113 people alive today. Another 28,000 people are uprooted every day. The last time there were this many refugees was during World War 2.
Three reasons why we refuse to lose hope.
First, God is alive and well along the refugee highway today. Second, Refugees are more than people in need. They are an important part of the solution. And third, God has begun a worldwide movement of his people to welcome and love refugees.
