Compassionate Global Renewal



Who is World Refugee Care?

Refugee Family

There are more than 70 directives throughout God's Word about how His people are to treat aliens, strangers, and refugees. Yet so often, these directives go largely ignored because of fear, ignorance, or downright apathy.

Founded in 2014, World Refugee Care is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in the United States that reaches out to immigrants and refugees around the world to bring holistic healing and restoration in the name of Jesus Christ.

Jesus had great passion for refugees—partly because He became one when He fled His homeland with His family for fear of being killed (Matthew 2:13-15). Our goal is to emulate His heart for these broken and hurting families by demonstrating His love and sharing His grace to those who are desperate for it.

Our Mission

By partnering with friends like you, World Refugee Care joins God as He rebuilds the broken lives of refugees in the United States and around the world. We do this by sharing the grace of God compassionately and showing the love of God holistically to internally and externally displaced persons impacted by war, disease, famine, and poverty.

As we partner with generous friends like you meet their physical and spiritual needs, our prayer is that these refugees would see the love of God in action, respond to His grace by placing their faith in Jesus Christ, and experience healing and renewal by the power of His Spirit.

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in," Matthew 25:35

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." Luke 4:18-19

Our Work

Compassionate Global Renewal

Pastor Jalil Dawood fled his homeland in Iraq in 1982 during the war with Iran. After beginning a new life in the United States, Jalil made it his mission to feed and clothe physically and spiritually hungry refugees in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.

Today, Jalil's vision of helping rebuild broken refugee lives continues through World Refugee Care. With the help of friends like you, WRC brings hope and healing to some of the most vulnerable displaced families in areas like Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey.

This work is only made possible by your prayers and gifts. So thank you for your partnership to help rebuild broken lives all over the world!
