With every passing year, HRI is able to see its vision become more of a reality.

We are able to witness how our work, together with our partners, is steadily transforming communities and children’s lives for the better. Although there remains much work still to be accomplished, we are proud of our team’s tenacity and progress working through natural disasters, like Hurricane Matthew, and numerous other challenges to deliver high quality food, supplies and services to those in desperate need.

No matter the task in 2016, HRI faced it head on and strategized critical immediate and long-term solutions to protect children.

We are counting on your continued support in 2017!
