Times are very tough here in Zimbabwe. The drought continues and people are suffering. Crops are failing because it is too hot and the rains are scarce, and as the crops fail people's source of food are depleting. On top of this, there is no indication that the government has the means or the desire to help its people. It all comes down to you and your donations.
Thankfully, our feeding program here at Marula school has been able to continue for another few months. With your donations, we are able to supply the ingredients for the cooks to make a relish that is served over the mealie meal porridge, a staple food here in Zimbabwe.
Without this food, some of the 270 students here would go all day before getting a meal in the evening. That is a long time to go without food for a young child who has walked a substantial distance to attend school and then expected to concentrate all day long.
Many of the students are severely malnourished and there is no end in sight with the drought continuing, the economy continuing its downward spiral with hyperinflation the order of the day and the political situation worsening.
Please consider donating a few extra dollars to help us feed the children at Marula!
