Right now, the world is in crisis mode. The global economic impact of COVID-19 has doubled the number of people at risk of starvation since the pandemic began, soaring to a staggering 811 million. Though the availability of the global food supply has remained intact, accessibility has plummeted, primarily due to a lack of income and the increase in food cost. Supply chain disruptions and increased demand created scarcity in many world regions, driving up prices.
Foursquare Disaster Relief’s COVID-19 Hunger Crisis Response sends desperately needed relief to local pastors in our global Foursquare family, enabling them to provide relief to their starving communities.
The refugee crisis in Eastern Africa has quickly become one of the worst in the world. Drought, civil war and obstructions to humanitarian aid have led to severe famine for 20 million people.
Project Nourish is an initiative of Foursquare Disaster Relief in partnership with the Foursquare churches in the region who want to end the starvation crisis in East Africa.
With the collapse of the economy in recent years, Venezuelans have continued to experience ongoing and profound suffering due to lack of food and medical care, power outages, sickness and malnutrition. Over 3 million have fled, and many more are still fleeing from the country.
Foursquare Colombian pastors, seeing hundreds of people passing by their properties, have decided to do something to help. They are the perfect partners: local, compassionate and eager to help. “The Road to Hope” empowers these local churches to meet the needs of Venezuelan refugees at various “rest stops” along the way in their journeys.

More than 884 million people don’t have access to safe drinking water. Clean water is essential for survival. And yet, after a crisis, it is one of the most common and urgent needs. Even when there is no active disaster, 446,000 children die annually from diarrhea, caused mainly by unsafe drinking water.
Join Foursquare Disaster Relief’s water initiative, Project Water, as we work with our global Foursquare family to provide the six Foursquare regions worldwide with lifesaving water filtration systems. These systems provide fresh, clean water to people and serve as a safeguard when disaster strikes. We are giving our communities the tools to show the love of Christ in people’s darkest times of need. Water is life!
As the refugee crisis in the Middle East worsens, The Foursquare Church has an unprecedented opportunity to support our brothers and sisters as they care firsthand for those fleeing the conflict.
Amid the largest refugee crisis since World War II, our hearts are burdened and positioned to help in response. As millions flee terror in the Middle East, they pass through the nation of Turkey. Through our partnership with the Foursquare Turkey church, FDR can serve these refugees through Project Sanctuary.
