In 2010, the enormity of the challenges we've faced as partners in the struggle to help suffering people has been unprecedented. Floods, storms and wildfires have battered our neighbors here in the U.S. Overseas, the challenges were even greater as earthquakes, storms and floods threatened the lives of millions in Haiti, Pakistan, and parts of Central America.

From our disaster relief efforts to our frontline work battling hunger, poverty and dislocation, to our sustainability and empowerment initiatives, we are making a difference in the lives of our world’s hurting and hungry people.

Thank you for your partnership that is providing help and hope to millions of children and families.  Everyone who has participated in a CROP Hunger Walk, put together a CWS Kit, organized a Blankets+ celebration with their congregation or group, purchased a CWS Best Gift, or made a donation is making this work possible.
