International Association For Refugees (IAFR) seeks the welfare of forcibly displaced people together with the church. Forcibly Displaced People include refugees, asylum-seekers and internally displaced people (IDP). These women, children and men have been uprooted from their homes by rampant violence, war and/or persecution. We seek their welfare by focusing on long-term recovery work that serves to break isolation, strengthen community, build capacity, facilitate healing, promote reconciliation, deepen faith and generate hope.
We are working in the U.S., Europe and Africa, serving together with the church. IAFR connects local churches along the Refugee Highway (including refugee churches) with the church-at-large in ways that promote their welfare and help them further the kingdom of God in their context.
