More than 3,900 received help with livelihood needs through BGR disaster relief projects during the first five months of 2014.
BGR partners provided water filters for families in SE Asia whose drinking water became filled with bacteria and pollutants during monsoon floods.
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.
Distributed items will include buckets, bleach, soap, hand sanitizers, rubbing alcohol, antiseptic, brochures and placards.
