Overview

When disaster strikes, your church or family can help communities that have endured the unimaginable. No matter how distant a disaster may seem, Send Relief has partners around the world ready to jump into action and give food, water, shelter and health care to families recovering from devastation. From major disasters like Hurricane Harvey to smaller disasters like flooding in South Asia, our ministry projects provide relief for months and even years after the disaster.

Current Crises

  • Ruidoso, New Mexico Wildfires – Send Relief is supporting the New Mexico Southern Baptist Disaster Relief (SBDR) teams as they respond to the wildfires that have damaged over 200 homes in Ruidoso, New Mexico. SBDR volunteer teams are providing warm meals, fire clean-up assistance, showers, laundry and more to families impacted by the fires. To support the response, give using the give box above.
  • Ukraine Crisis – As the ongoing conflict on the Ukraine-Russia border intensifies, Ukraine will likely experience a catastrophic humanitarian crisis among those displaced by the conflict. Send Relief is working with local Baptist partners in Ukraine to respond to the looming crisis and meet hunger, shelter and clothing needs. Your gifts to the Ukraine Crisis Fund are already providing emergency food supplies, shelter and more for displaced families. Click here to learn more.
