Those walking for Covenant World Relief can raise money for one of two different CWR projects:

  • Fuentes Libres is an organization that is partnering with CWR to provide holistic micro-finance to marginalized families in Oaxaca, Mexico. Click here for more information.
  • Hindustani Covenant Church (HCC) is the Evangelical Covenant Church in India. They are a very important partner for Covenant World Relief, and they have joined with us to do many community development projects, including their three Covenant Social Services projects in Chopda, Dang, and Orissa.
