Hunger Relief International (HRI) is a Judeo-Christian organization that works to improve and protect the lives of desperately poor children and families by building resiliency, fighting hunger, promoting family unity, and increasing self-sufficiency. HRI does this through direct programming and by raising public awareness.
HRI initially addresses immediate issues of hunger and unreliable access to food, also known as food insecurity. Once HRI begins implementing nutrition programs in a community, our team crafts a long-term, strategic plan for development projects in partnership with the local community leadership. Addressing the challenge of hunger and unreliable access to nutritional food, especially for children, provides significant motivation for parents and community leaders to embrace the long-term responsibilities of improving the standard of living and self-sufficiency of the community. By connecting with local and international churches, universities, businesses, farmers, governments, and community partners we help to facilitate long term, sustainable and transformational community growth and development. Together we address critical challenges facing vulnerable communities and their environment.Our strategy ultimately prevents child abandonment, trafficking, unlawful migration, selling children into servitude, and other forms of child exploitation.
HRI serves children and families impacted by extreme poverty or natural disasters who lack food, water, education and/or sanitation by RESPONDING TO CRISIS, BUILDING RESILIENCE and CREATING OPPORTUNITIES that treat and prevent short and long-term effects of hunger and malnutrition.
We proudly work with churches, individuals, universities, businesses, foundations, and organizations that have a desire to make a difference and improve outcomes for vulnerable children, families, and communities. We welcome your involvement as a donor, fundraiser, mission trip volunteer, or advocate. Please contact us to learn more. Without our valuable partners, nothing we do would be possible!
