Food parcel

We got a chance to take a food parcel to a family last night that literally had not had any food in 4 days!  One of the teenage girls in the family is in a program that provides her with transportation and tuition to a really good secondary school, but it’s hard to do well in school when you’re literally starving.  The food parcel we took consisted of corn meal, sugar beans, oil, salt, sugar, soup/stew mix and soap.  It cost about $22 and will feed this family for 2 weeks.  This is the hands-on impact all of you have had by supporting this trip.  This food is a short-term solution, for sure, but the daughter’s education and opportunity for a better job or even university is what will get this family out of their cycle of poverty.
