Food for the Hungry is more than a relief and development organization. We are a tested, trusted and innovative partner who respectively walks with the poor in more than 26 countries worldwide while intentionally reflecting the love of Jesus. Food for the Hungry implements transformational development programs in impoverished communities around the world. Our programs include: food and agriculture; water and sanitation; health and nutrition; child sponsorship; HIV/AIDS; economic development; church development; disaster relief; and shipping gifts in kind.
General Relief and Development Program$42m
Under the umbrella of Child-Focused Community Transformation, emergency relief and rehabilitation, clean-water and sanitation projects, health education and intervention, agriculture development, income generation, life-skills training, and education programs are conducted around the world in developing countries and specifically in the hard places among the poorest of the poor. Over 3 million have been helped this past year through these programs.
Child Sponsorship Program$34m
Through a community development model, monthly sponsorship equips families to address the nutrition, clothing, health, and spiritual needs of a child. Because the programs are family and community based, gifts help the entire family and community. Currently there are over 125,000 sponsored children in 17 countries around the world. These countries are Bolivia, Peru, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Burundi, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Philippines, and India.
Gifts in Kind Program$20m
Non-monetary donations, called "gifts-in-kind", including but not limited to, food, seeds, clothing, medical supplies, and pharmaceuticals are sought and integrated in FH relief, rehabilitation, and development programs. These donations are matched with the needs of field locations as well as other agencies. Through all our donated pharmaceuticals, water filtration units, hope packs, medical supplies and other smaller gifts in kind, we have been privileged to serve millions of the poorest of the poor around the world. Countries to which we have shipped these donations are Bolivia, Peru, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Burundi, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Philippines, and India.
