History & Impact

World Help was born out of humble beginnings . . . with just a handful of staff members and God-sized ambition.

Our work began in 1991 distributing Bibles across Eastern Europe. Almost immediately, God opened the doors to share the Gospel in the former Soviet Union. Through an initiative called “Moscow for Jesus,” millions of Russians heard the Good News for the very first time.

This initiative produced remarkable results . . . lives were changed for eternity. Each year, our goals to impact more lives grew more audacious, leaving plenty of room for God to use our faithful supporters, like you, to accomplish the miraculous.

Over the years, God has enabled us to do more than we ever could have imagined through the generosity of faithful supporters, like you, and the expertise of our growing network of international partners.

In addition to Bible distribution, church planting, and humanitarian aid, we’ve provided more than 50,000 sponsorships for abandoned and orphaned children. Nearly 800 clean-water projects have been provided in impoverished communities worldwide, revolutionizing health and paving the way for educational and job opportunities.
