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.
Disaster relief projects provided blankets or bedding for 1,357 people from January through May 2013.
BGR partners helped provide emergency food and water for 5,000 people displaced by fighting in Sudan.
Distributed items will include buckets, bleach, soap, hand sanitizers, rubbing alcohol, antiseptic, brochures and placards.
