Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, BGR is not far away. Working through our expert staff, local partners and trained volunteers, we provide food, water, shelter, medical help, and hope to those who have experienced life-devastating disaster events.

Hurricanes Irma & Maria: BGR is working with partners on the ground in response to two powerful hurricanes in the Caribbean. Click here to read more about Hurricanes Irma & Maria.

Mexico Earthquake: BGR is supporting local partners to distribute food packets and other basic necessities.

Rohingya Refugee Crisis: 400,000 Rohingya peoples have been forced to flee their homes to Bangladesh due to religious and ethnic fighting. BGR partners have completed assessments and will soon begin distributing food, hygiene items, and shelter.
