IAFR is an international Christian mission agency designed for ministry in humanitarian contexts.
Forced displacement often leaves people without shelter, water, food and basic medical care. When the humanitarian world struggles to meet these basic needs, IAFR and our partners do what we can to help.
Recovery from forced displacement requires a supportive community, life-giving faith and emotional healing. It also includes regaining opportunities to make a meaningful contribution to society.
Good news! Many churches and people want to help refugees. They just don't know where to begin. IAFR's cutting edge refugee ministry training is specifically designed with the local church in mind.

82.4 million people worldwide have been forced to flee their homes due to persecution, war and gross violations of human rights. Every day, another 30,600 people are forcibly uprooted.
The routes they travel and the spaces they inhabit are our mission field. We call it the Refugee Highway.
IAFR is an international Christian mission agency that is helping people survive and recover from forced displacement.
Our work flows naturally out of our relationship with Jesus Christ who taught us that the greatest of all commandments is to love God and our neighbor.
We are committed to helping churches discover their unique role in the global refugee crisis and to then engage in life-giving ways that play to their strengths.
We are committed to financial integrity and transparency. As a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organisation, IAFR complies with U.S. Federal and State laws and carries out an annual independent audit.
