'I am... I was a pianist.'
Nana remembers leaving everything behind, her house completely demolished, her family and friends displaced by conflict in Georgia. CWS helps Nana and others regain confidence and find new sources of self sufficiency. See their stories, as told by Jovana Savic of CWS Europe.
Holidays are here - but needs continue
As thousands around the world wrestle with fallout from catastrophe, your support means CWS can help the whole year round. See how we're at work in Africa's drought, and in the U.S. following Texas wildfires and 2011's spring storms.
A legend remembered
This week we said goodbye to John Backer, who served CWS for decades. His first role at CWS was as a volunteer to meet newly arriving refugees on the piers of New York City. In nearly four decades of work, he helped resettle tens of thousands of refugees for CWS.
