Dorina's Rescue

Could you survive on $70 a month? This is the reality for much of the Roma community, the most vulnerable people group in Europe.

Learn more about Dorina and how World Challenge partners came alongside her family to provide hope.

Ministers and the church in Egypt are working tirelessly to reach their people, despite a challenging Muslim culture.

As God moves in his life, one man is rediscovering the musical abilities that seemed lost in the sea of heroin addiction.

According to government studies, nearly 22 million Americans are addicted to alcohol or drugs.

Jerry Nance, director of Global Teen Challenge, points out that the world is in an epidemic of addiction. No matter where he goes—India, the Netherlands, Vietnam, America—he has found that drugs are the modern method of drowning out pain and hopelessness.

World Challenge believes that caring for people’s most basic needs like food can be the most loving thing we do when they cry out for help.

The Bible speaks regularly and strongly about how God’s people are to care for those who are less fortunate, and it’s clear that we are meant to care for each other in times of need.

Several of our partners around the world have reached out to World Challenge and asked for prayer during this COVID-19 pandemic.

In Cambodia, our partners have been notified that all schools are now closed, and the country’s New Year celebrations are canceled.

One girl was stolen from her birth family and left searching for a true home until she entered World Challenge’s partner-church in Albania.

Albania in the 1970s, caught under the boot of Enver Hoxha and his sharply Stalinist ideas of government, was not a friendly place for those who did not match the mold of mainstream society.

One sweet little girl came to World Challenge’s partners after having endured terrible and unusual circumstances at home.

Most children don’t expect their parents to start needing help and care until well into their golden years.

The Center for Retirement Research at Boston College found that the vast majority of adult children don’t begin providing care for their parents until they’re well into their own 60s and 70s.
