The provision of porridge is necessary, especially during times of acute hunger, as Zimbabweans are experiencing right now, due to drought. We will purchase the porridge as locally as possible and will deliver it to the children most affected by hunger, feeding them through this terrible time. They will be able to recover their strength and will return to their every-day lives, attending school once again.
100 children who are going hungry due to poor rains in sections of Zimbabwe will be able to return to school and to their daily routines due to the provision of fortified porridge. With renewed strength, they will be able to make it until the next rainy season, when their gardens should produce fruit.
