Multiple Stress Points
Multiple stresses, such as COVID-19, climate-related events, conflicts and political instability, threaten food security in low-income communities. In addition, the flow of fuel and food scarcity in some regions where we work has heightened desperate living conditions and extreme poverty.
When disasters strike, those living in poverty often lose their assets on which their survival depends. At the same time, their limited resources, lack of access to education and health services can increase their expose to risks.
Conflicts & Political Issues
With Russia and Ukraine among some of the biggest producers of wheat and cooking oil (25% of global wheat exports and 75% of sunflower oil exports), the war has disrupted supply lines. This increases the cost of essentials – staples such as rice, beans and lentils are becoming unaffordable for those below the poverty line.
“Each day we think, ‘Where do we get the needed food?’ It has been several weeks since we had [protein] and fresh vegetables. Life has become so hard to live without work and money. Thank you, Destiny Rescue, so much for this generous help.”
There is Hope.
After years of serving effectively in these regions, our presence is welcome and trusted in hundreds of villages across South Asia and our projects in Africa. And we have strong partnerships with well-established aftercare organisations
and law enforcement.
South Asia (Undisclosed Country)
To distribute food regularly to survivors in our care, we coordinate monthly food drops in multiple communities alongside our partner in the country.
In May, we handed out food packs to 400 survivors in our community care program in the area. Previously, some families travelled over 70kms to pick up food packs, so our team adjusted the drop-off locations. This made the overall distribution process take longer for us but reduced the distance each family would need to travel to pick up their food pack.
Last quarter, our 41 new survivors in Cambodia were presented with a Food Pack to help support their reintegration.
In 2021, Destiny Rescue liberated over 2,386 people, including 1,684 children, across eight countries. Already this year, we have extended into ten countries and continue the research and development stages in others.

Who We Rescue
