World Relief

World Relief DuPage/Aurora works to create welcoming communities where refugees and immigrants thrive. In partnership with the local church, World Relief envisions the most vulnerable people transformed economically, socially, and spiritually. 


February 2023 marked one year since the beginning of the war in Ukraine. World Relief continues to be present both in assisting Ukrainian refugees around the world, but also on-the-ground in Ukraine. Learn about this continued effort through an interview with Robert Hessenauer, Ukraine Response Coordinator for World Relief.
