Baptist World Aid

BWAid is the relief and development arm of the Baptist World Alliance.  The international agency was formed to provide aid following World War I. Over the years it has provided relief and development aid, training and networking. From its beginning BWAid relief has been for all who are in need, regardless of race or religion.

BWAid has been collecting information on needs around the world, sharing these concerns with its member bodies and others, trying to build a collaborative response to meet the needs, and encouraging Baptists and others to give to the BWA so that in His name we might care.

Like never before, BWAid now requires the support of individuals, churches, BWA member bodies, foundations and new funding sources. The needs are still there and financial gifts are still required.
