Disaster Relief Fund
Funding Goal: $200,000 USD
The Disaster Relief Fund enables a Baptist response to be made to emergency situations where unusual circumstances disrupt or destroy community life – famine, earthquakes, hurricanes, cyclones, tornadoes, fire, floods, volcanic eruptions, civil strife or war. Since Baptist World Alliance members now have a presence in more than 100 different countries, we have personnel in many areas where disasters occur. It is the local Baptist communities who are on the scene and ministering to their neighbors in times of crisis. They know the situations and the needs. When BWAid receives a request to assist from a member body, it is the Emergency Response Fund that allows us to make an initial response to the crisis.
Water Relief Fund
Funding Goal: US$100,000
Clean drinkable water is a basic human need. Today there are over 663 million people living without a safe water supply close to home*. In countries where drinkable water is easily accessible, many people take the availability of water for granted. For many, finding clean drinkable water is a daily struggle. The water fund assists those are affected by droughts and water pollution.

Funding Goal: US$100,000
Hunger continues to be one of the greatest problems facing our world today. Natural disasters and human made catastrophes have a devastating effect on food production. This fund does not only purchase food items but also used ship food to those who are hungry. At other times, we can provide the resources for people to grow their own food.
In the USA, funds can be designated to BWAid from CROP Hunger Walk activities.
