Human Relief Foundation

Food Projects

Human Relief Foundation strives to reach and feed hungry people in countries such as Iraq, Jordan, Libya, Pakistan, Palestine, Somalia, and Syria.

870 million people in the world do not have enough to eat.

The Food Crisis

Hunger is responsible for one third of deaths in children globally each year. Hunger kills more people every year than AIDS, Malaria and TB combined. These are just some of the shocking statistics revealed by our partner World Food Programme.

98% of the world’s hungry people live in developing countries. Lack of resources, failing rains and intense heat mean that people living in developing countries are struggling to grow their own crops. When this happens, it is important that those more fortunate come forward with food to help people survive immediate disaster. If we don’t, hundreds of thousands of people will die of starvation in just a few short weeks. The majority of them will be weaker segments of society, such as children or the elderly.

If you select ‘General Food Fund’, you are trusting HRF to allocate your donations to the neediest people at that time.

Food at HRF

Human Relief Foundation has seven strategically placed offices around the globe, so we can respond quickly to natural disaster. In 2011, East Africa was in the middle of one of the most intense periods of drought faced by humans in the last sixty years. Crops were failing and water sources were drying up at an alarming rate. Human Relief Foundation responded with an emergency appeal and gave food and water to thousands of people.

We still need help. There are millions of people across the world who do not have enough food to survive. Human Relief Foundation is constantly distributing food parcels to needy people in developing countries. In Jordan we are currently feeding over 20,000 Syrian refugees a month. There are many who rely on these rations for food security. We need your help to continue to provide them.
