We still have 145 kids to feed every day, but yesterday we got a big boost to that. Mead Johnson donated a LOT of baby formula that is going to a number of organizations. We currently have 75 kids who are drinking at least some formula, so this is a big thing for us.
How much did they donate? Enough to fill four containers. A container is 40 ft long by 8 ft wide by 8 ft tall. That's a lot of formula - 7,700 cases of it.
But guess what, it will all be used by the organizations who are getting it by November 1. That's right, between 2 hospitals, an orphanage (us) and a rescue clinic, we'll have it all gone by November 1 - which is the expiration date of the formula.
It's a huge help - but it is not a long term answer to prayer - we still have day to day challenges of feeding our 145 kids - while 75 of them do use formula - 70 of them don't and some of those on formula also eat solid food - so that's a big expense.
Thank you for anything you have done and can do to help us continue to feed the kids!
