We at World Relief are sad about the events of Jan 6th at the U.S. Capitol.
We know that many of you may be scared as you saw the violence at the Capitol. This may look like the situation you left behind in your country.
The beliefs seen at the Capitol building are not the same as World Relief and not the same as all Americans. In the Bible, God tells us to love our neighbors and be peacemakers.
World Relief does not agree with what happened at the Capitol.
We are sad about the people that died in the violence. We are sad about the difficult times refugees, immigrants and people of color are experiencing in the United States.
World Relief’s goal is to create welcoming communities. We want everyone to be treated fairly and feel safe in the United States. We want each person and family to find peace and hope for a good life in the United States.
We are praying for you and your family to be safe during this time.
Please let someone at World Relief know if you feel scared about the situation in our country, including the pandemic, and need someone to talk. We see you, we are glad you are here, and we stand with you.
