Lutheran World Relief is an international nonprofit organization specializing in international development and disaster relief. LWR promotes sustainable development by helping communities increase the quality of life, engage in fair trade, and be better equipped to handle emergencies. The expanded mission LWR originated from its beginnings as a non-governmental organization founded in 1945 for helping many European Lutherans who suffered devastation during World War II. In the wake of the 2004 Southeast Asia Tsunami, Newsweek Magazine ranked LWR as one of the best international relief agencies, giving the Lutheran group an "A+" rating. LWR continues to receive high rankings from organizations such as the American Institute of Philanthropy, which gave LWR an A rating in 2007 through 2010, and Charity Navigator, which rated LWR the maximum four stars.
