Reviews for Hunger Relief International

Rating: 4 stars  

We have been working with HRI in Guatemala for 3 years. I think HRI does a good job of defining the parameters of who they are serving. In Guatemala, for example, they have identified 5 villages and are working a plan to break the cycle of poverty with sanitation, nutrition, education and self-sufficiency in those villages.

I love that the nutrition programs and the work projects are locally-sourced, from a resource and personnel standpoint. I also love that the in-country programs are run from Guatemala, by Guatemalan people.

We have supported a number of HRI programs over the years. Their programs are sound and are meeting genuine needs throughout their service area. We have been impressed with the "service after gift" practices of the organization. We receive immediate receipts and periodic program reports on how our support is affecting change for those in need.

Great organization with not only a passion for helping others, but they have a complete plan that uses in country personnel to accomplish their goals. They are not just providing meals, but provide training and personal life skills.

I have worked with Hunger Relief International for the last several years on projects in both Haiti and Guatemala. During these projects I have seen HRI go out of their way to ensure their projects are productive and efficient, as well they have brought in mission groups and students from universities to show the people of these villages how to grow efficient gardens, installed water filtrations, and to build dorms and security walls for the children. The most impressive thing is to see them invite other organizations long to increase the experience pool to share with these villages, from universities for garden projects, organizations for water projects, engineering firms for sanitation projects. Their teams are made up of local people and they purchase their food for their projects from the local farmers. Unlike other organizations which drop food and leave the local farmers with no one to buy their crops, Hunger Relief has though this trough and care about the people. They strive for the bigger picture of covering not just food, but deworming, clean water, and education, these are the things combined that will break the cycle of poverty. HRI has received awards for their transparency, and Rachel Zelon the founder has been named one of the top 30 people of the world to influence world hunger. This woman even went to Iraq during the war with no support to find and airlift the frail and dwindling remains of a once thriving Jewish community.

We have partnered with Hunger Relief International (HRI) for over seven years. We have had the amazing opportunity to partner with HRI and Rachel. I know first hand that they do everything with in the powers to make sure that not only the needs of the orphanages are met, but all those groups that serve with them! The staff are very kind and genuine in their wanting to help not only provide for immediate care, but also for these young men's future. It has been life changing for our team when we go to Haiti. Logistics, food, travel, and accommodations are good. HRI is first class! HRI has great ethics and it is our privilege to partner with them.

My name is Jonathan Poe and I serve as the Care Pastor and Mission Cooridnator at Skybreak Church, located in College Station TX.

Mission trips: In-country guides and translators are great. Stateside support is minimal. All costs are inflated. Dispute resolution a joke. Make sure you know exactly what you are getting.

Transparency is virtually nonexistent.

Nutrition support provided to orphanage is extremely inadequate, and again, there is no transparency or attempt at dispute resolution.

HRI is an amazing organization working tirelessly to improve the lives of vulnerable children and their families. The community based initiatives are truly fulfilling the organization's mission. Knowing that 95% of donations go directly to programs is reassuring. The wonderful newsletters and updates are informative and inspirational. I am proud to support HRI and am confident that they will accomplish their current and future goals. I highly recommend this great organization !
