Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, BGR is not far away with excellent disaster response. Working through our expert staff, local partners and trained volunteers, we provide food, water, shelter, medical help, and hope to those who have experienced life-devastating disaster events.

Rohingya Refugee Crisis: 400,000 Rohingya peoples have been forced to flee their homes to a neighboring country due to religious and ethnic fighting. BGR partners have responded by providing basic necessities.

Crisis in Venezuela: BGR is working with local partners both inside and outside the country to find appropriate ways to help with food supply that doesn’t threaten or cause issues for our implementing partners. Click here for more information.

If you wish to help in any of these disasters, you can donate to the general BGR disaster relief fund below.
