HD and ILA  



On June 20 2014, Hollace Sherwood went home to be with the Lord.  He and his wife Ila started the Hunger Relief 'Corn Project' effort in 1985 after reading about famine in Ethiopia.

Hollace was active with the corn project for nearly twenty years, but even after a debilitating stroke limited his strength, and the death of his beloved Ila, the project has continued with the
 help of volunteers and financial assistance from individuals and churches everywhere, and has provided corn to hungry people all over the world.

What is the "Bryantsville Hunger Relief Project"?

Bryantsville Hunger Relief Project exists to help provide food to the “poorest of the poor” people in third world or disaster-ravaged countries by supplying corn for distribution by various relief agencies. 
BHRP is a non-profit Christian agency, staffed entirely by unpaid, volunteer labor. 
The project has been active since 1985, and has sent out more than 150,000 bags of corn to destinations all over the world, in the name of Jesus. 

The corn is grown on Rosehill Farm in Bryantsville, Indiana. 
Funds donated to BHRP are used to pay for the corn; volunteers use equipment there at the farm to clean the grain, and place it into 60-pound bags. 
Bags are loaded to trucks or shipping containers for shipping to the receiving relief agency.  A standard truck-load is 700 bags (42,000 pounds). 
Occasionally church youth groups or civic organizations are involved in bagging and loading of the corn, helping the “regular” volunteers. 

Because of limited storage space for bagged corn, the corn must remain in the grain bin until a definite destination is contracted and planned. Only then can the corn be bagged and a load made ready for pickup. 

Some of the relief agencies we have partnered with include:“Feed The Children”, "Feed The Hungry", “World Gospel Outreach”, and “Lifeline”.  Much of the corn sent out recently has gone to locations in El Salvador and Honduras, to areas devastated by Hurricane Mitch. Central America has been hit hard by earthquakes, hurricanes, and drought in the last few years. 

Please consider the ways you or your organization can help support the Bryantsville Hunger Relief Project. 
One recommended way for a group to help is to “sponsor” a load of corn,and follow it through: 
   1. choose a destination or relief agency 
   2.  raise the funds to purchase the corn 
   3. come to Rosehill Farm to bag and load the corn 
   4. perhaps do a short-term missions trip to the receiving destination to help distribute the corn to hungry people. 

Financial gifts of any size are welcome, and are combined with other gifts to help pay for the corn and make it available to relief organizations. Normally, BHRP provides the corn free to relief organizations if they will arrange and pay for the shipping. 

Most important, please pray for Bryantsville Hunger Relief Project, for the safety and efficiency of all those involved in providing corn to hungry people.
