I'm familiar with the work HRI does, and I've been impressed since Day One. HRI doesn't just air-drop box lunches to children in need. They have a 'boots on the ground' approach and their service model is based on attacking the root causes of child hunger, disease and malnutrition by providing resources and education to entire families. The approach is unique and the staff is dedicated. I can't say enough good things about the organization.

I love the work that HRI does in Haiti. They not work with orphanages but they work at investing in the Haitian economy & its farmers. And they also work orphan prevention.

HRI does such amazing work with so little. It sets the bar for other charities that are so overblown administratively.

For one so young, to have accomplished so much in two countries, with so little staff, is truly inspiring.

This is a phenomenal organization.

To Whom It May Concern:

I have been very happy to support HRI over the years as I truly believe in their programming of offering educational programs for sustainable living for children in Haiti, Guatemala and beyond. While providing money and food is needed and important,when an organization goes beyond that and provides education in setting up water sources, working with local farmers to learn to grow their own food and partnering with churches to facilitate these goals, THIS is what is needed for long term success. I am happy to support such an organization.

Hunger Relief International has helped save the lives of numerous vulnerable children, teens and their families by partnering with local communities to educate and ensure that children and their families are able to have access to clean drinking water, health care and nutritional food.

What sets Hunger Relief International apart is that HRI works with and teaches local farmers, community religious organizations and Government leaders how to grow nutritious foods as well as engage and empower the community to take part in their own health.

Visiting countries like Haiti (among others) HRI has worked to identify water-borne illnesses and resolve this issue through a water treatment and filtration process that the community can now implement themselves. Providing the community ( through donations) with hygiene kits, sanitary latrines, parasite programs and safe cooking stoves will continue to reduce illness and save the lives of the most vulnerable.

On the ground and traveling to countries like Haiti and Guatemala, Hunger Relief International has been successful in saving the sick and undernourished. Many children have lived as a result of implemented programs that address the sick and malnourished.

Hunger Relief International 's programs and the education of the local communities has saved many and helped those in dire need to help themselves through your donations, programs and education.

As a parent, clean drinking water, food and a sanitary home and environment is something most take for granted. These vulnerable children will survive and learn from their parents and community (with the help of HRI) to thrive.

Hunger Relief International has been successful in implementing programs and education across the globe. Medical clinics, planting projects, mosquito nets, nutritional support programs, home planting gardens and more.

Hunger Relief International and it's efforts have been proven to be successful and many should donate and or continue to donate to this wonderful organization.

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.
