The Hunger Crisis is a daily disaster. People go without food because of poor agriculture, disasters such as flood and drought, political and commercial mismanagement, war and civil strife, and climate change.
BWAid works with Baptist unions and conventions to provide aid to the most vulnerable people, women, children and the elderly. With your generous donation we can continue to reduce hunger, one family at a time.
Encourage your church, bible study group or Sunday school class to give. Your donation is much appreciated by mudslide victims in Sierra Leone; flood victims in Texas, USA and Nepal; drought sufferers in Zimbabwe and Uganda; and civil unrest refugees and displaced populations of Central Africa Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria, and South Sudan. On the behalf of those who received hunger relief from Baptists around the world, thank you!

Undernutrition goes beyond calories and signifies deficiencies in any or all of the following: energy, protein, or essential vitamins and minerals.
