ABOUT GHR

Southern Baptists are fighting the global hunger crisis through Global Hunger Relief. 

Established in 1978 as the World Hunger Fund, Global Hunger Relief is an initiative of the Southern Baptist Convention dedicated to combating hunger and sharing the Bread of Life.  

GHR funds are used in Gospel-centered hunger projects that share God’s love in both word and deed.

GHR-funded projects meet crisis hunger needs in famine or natural disasters, but also focus on long-term, sustainable solutions to end chronic hunger, such as: 

-      Job skills training
-      Livestock and seed distribution
-      Clean water
-      Home reconstruction
-      Medical care
-      Aftercare for human trafficking victims

Through Global Hunger Relief,
Southern Baptists are helping communities and lives be transformed… for today, tomorrow, and forever.

100% of your donation goes directly to meeting hunger needs.
