A new school year has begun and we're in need of supplies. Food is always our main focus but school supplies are always a need. We're half way through the year and the pencils are worn out. Notebooks are torn and used and chalk is running low. Anything helps with our ongoing need for supplies and food. Please help.
The problem is there is not enough food and school supplies. Children are skipping meals, sometimes only receiving 1 meal a day. Pencils and notebooks are wearing out. Chalk is gone. It's the middle of the school year and we need to boost our supplies.
This project will raise funds to buy the food and supplies for 100 children. We need to keep the kids supplied so they can grow strong and healthy in the months to come and continue to do well in school. Even the smallest donation will feed at least half of the children.
The long term effect will be healthy growing children who receive more than 1 meal a day. Children will not go to bed hungry, hoping that God will provide for them the next day. All 100 children, at the orphanage and with family based homes, will know that their next meal has already been provided and they can go with confidence to school and home again. The desperation of famine will be relieved and the children will do well in school, grow strong and have the ability to fight off infection.
