Gospel-Centered Hunger Solutions

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


What is Global Hunger Relief?

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

Missions-focused GHR projects are carried out by Send Relief, a joint ministry of the North American Mission Board and International Mission Board. All GHR projects have an intentional spiritual strategy, work with Southern Baptist personnel, solicit local input and expertise and have accountability measures built in.

How are my gifts used?

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

In addition to meeting crisis hunger needs during famine and natural disasters, GHR-funded projects focus on long-term, sustainable solutions to end chronic hunger through job skills training, livestock and seed distribution, clean water, home reconstruction, medical care and more.
