Hunger Response International’s PARTNERS:
Hunger Response International is pleased to partner with many excellent organizations to help address hunger locally and globally.
Act locally – Act globally
Hungry for Life
In a reclusive and isolated region in Mexico, high up in the Copper Canyon, 50% of the children in the community of Babicora die before the age of ten years due mostly to lack of food, malnutrition and disease. We’re helping families make it through until their next harvest with a nutrition-packed food distribution and then supplying them with the things that they need to grow vegetables and fruit with Garden Grow Kits and chickens.
$3000 for food distribution and $200 per garden grow kit and two chickens.

Paid in Food: Socially and economically marginalized people – many are of the Dalt caste and live in acute poverty – reside in remote villages affected by drought. Thousands will benefit from this ‘work-for-food’ project as they develop their infrastructure like roads, irrigation, bricks, wells and so much more. 176 villages in 30 districts have been selected for this project. This is a $4 – $1 CIDA matched project for 2010.

Food for the Hungry Canada
Coffee is believed to have origninated in Ethiopia and now we are helping desperately poor and chronically hungry families in the Sasiga community to become coffee growers/farmers in order to gain food security. We’ll provide the coffee plant seedlings, the fertilizer to enhance the soil, a well to provide clean water for about 70 families, along with the training and tools needed.
This project is a $3 to $1 CIDA matching project. For every dollar that we raise, the Canadian Governement will match with $3!
2010 -Burundi: Goats and Cows
The Rice Raiser is partnering with FH Canada, a registered, Christian, non-governmental organization dedicated to sustainable development and emergency response worldwide.
Their belief that people in poverty need more than just food allows them to ensure stable, holistic development for families and communities in third world countries.
FH Canada works among the world’s poorest poor

Hope International Development Agency
In Pursat, Cambodia a lack of food prevents malnourished children from attending school, forces fathers to search for work far away from their homes and traps sick and frightened families in their poverty. Dry Rice Farming is growing rice all year long, even in the dry season, helping families to nearly triple their yearly rice harvests in an environmentally sustainable way. It restores health, hope and security to Cambodia’s hard-working poor families.
$18,000 can transform an entire village!
