Baptist Global Response
Tobacco farmers in E Asia, kept in poverty by price controls, pursued switching to other cash crops or livestock, with the help of BGR partners who helped set up distribution systems beyond their immediate community.
The Asian Rural Life Development Foundation partnered with BGR to train people from 12 countries in community development, FAITH gardening, SALT farming and goat production in 2012.
More than 3,900 received help with livelihood needs through BGR disaster relief projects during the first five months of 2014.
Distributed items will include buckets, bleach, soap, hand sanitizers, rubbing alcohol, antiseptic, brochures and placards.
