The world is facing the worst hunger crisis we’ve seen in 40 years.

With 2.3 billion people plagued by food insecurity, the fight against hunger has never been more urgent.
Through Global Hunger Relief, Southern Baptists are fighting hunger with gospel-centered hunger solutions.


What is Global Hunger Relief?

Southern Baptists join together to fight the hunger crisis by giving to the Global Hunger Relief (GHR) Fund. Established in 1978 as the World Hunger Fund, Global Hunger Relief is an initiative of the Southern Baptist Convention dedicated to providing food and sharing the Bread of Life.

Send Relief, a joint ministry of the North American Mission Board and International Mission Board, carries out missions-focused GHR projects. All GHR projects have an intentional spiritual strategy, solicit local input and expertise, work with Southern Baptist personnel 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.
