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.
After a flood struck a Southeast Asian country, BGR distributed 850 food bags to families representing roughly 3,000 people.
Distributed items will include buckets, bleach, soap, hand sanitizers, rubbing alcohol, antiseptic, brochures and placards.
There are three major crises going on in the Middle East affecting thousands of families.
