We’re just starting to promote this project, so there isn’t much to report. But we didn’t want to leave you without a few things to think about:
We believe in the well-being of the children we serve. Your gifts help provide food that nourishes them, bringing them from the brink of hunger and malnutrition to a state in which they can grow and thrive. Thank you for believing in us and giving these children a chance at life.
Just as life cannot happen without growth and action, it is limited without relationships and interaction. Think of us each time you take a step. Think about the power of your gift. As you walk down the street, run on the treadmill or laugh with those you love, think about how your gift has helped the children we serve do just the same.
We posted this project to close out the year in a strong position. Already, support from people like you is helping us relocate our center to new land. While it's important that we move, it's also important that we don't stop our work in the process.
Recently, one of the HIV positive children we serve has been put on second-line treatment. That means the first-line, or regimen, of pills that he was prescribed didn't work. One of the reasons it didn't work is because the child went hungry. He didn't get enough food and nutrition to process the medications, and he's at greater risk of becoming ill because of that.
We should be clear: there is no third-line of drugs. This is the child's last chance. And you can help save his life by making a gift today. Your gift will, in part, make sure he has the winning combination of food, love and medicine to overcome this obstacle.
Make a gift. Save a life. And inspire your friends to do the same.
