We're proud to announce the newest addition to our global offices: a new office in Pretoria, South Africa!

This office helps to resettle refugees from southern Africa as part of the United States Refugee Admissions Program, works in creating safe spaces for LGBTI refugees and operates an urban livelihoods program.

A 7.3-magnitude earthquake has struck Nepal, claiming more lives and homes just a few short weeks after the devastating 7.8-magnitude quake.

CWS and its ACT Alliance partners are responding to both quakes. You can help: cwsglobal.org/nepal

Congratulations to the new Woodinville CROP Hunger Walk in Washington, which raised more than $5,400 at its first ever Walk!

Whether you've been walking for 40 years or you're brand new, you play a valuable role in ending hunger one step at a time!

This community in Myanmar now has access to clean drinking water thanks to a water supply improvement project, which connected a local water source (seen here on the left) to the village.

This lessens the burden of carrying heavy water containers home from the stream: http://ow.ly/MO0Cz
