Baptist Global Response
Families fleeing a crisis in northern Mali, where famine already was an issue, received emergency food supplies through BGR partners.
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.
More than 38,500 people benefited from community development or disaster relief food distribution projects during the first five months of 2014.
BGR provides food, water, shelter, and medical help to those who have experienced life-devastating disaster events.
