Middle East Crisis

There are three major crises going on in the Middle East affecting thousands of families. In Gaza BGR is partnering with a local organization to distribute food to 1,000 Palestinian families sequestered in their homes or in shelters. Up to 300 families will receive temporary housing and up to 500 will receive various food items in Iraq. In Syria we are distributing food and hygiene items, blankets and medicine to 2500-4000 refugee families as well as diapers and formula for families with young children. Help BGR help those in need.
