About the blog

Blogsite – Fruit Salad

LWF World Service is the internationally recognized humanitarian and development arm of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF). This blog is a platform for World Service to share with you the work we do with vulnerable communities in remote areas around the world. It is a place and space to share human interest stories about how the lives of people are being changed for the better through the work and actions of LWF World Service in the different country programs around the world. It shares a variety of experiences of real people through stories from a mix of countries, projects and people, sharing and highlighting the fruits of our work – hence the name “Fruit Salad”.

It includes stories from LWF World Service staff (in the country programs), but we also invite stories and travel logs from our partners and colleagues working with our Related Agencies, church agencies and partners who support us – so when one of the agencies supporting a country program is planning to send a journalist or reporter or staff member to our country program we invite you to share these stories, material and photos and we will post it on this site. The Department for World Service of the LWF, Geneva, Switzerland is responsible for managing the website.  Please contact and / or send your stories to Bobby Waddell, bwa@lutheranworld.org.
