A few years ago, we learned that a local friend in Haiti was paying out of his own pocket to feed fifty hungry kids in Ranquitte, Haiti. This friend has helped us coordinate projects in one of the rural communities we support, so for him to be burdened with the financial responsibility of feeding local kids means that other projects to develop the community can’t progress as efficiently. We offered to support the feeding program and our “Healthy Kids, Healthy Future” project was born.
The idea is simple: feed kids, and their ability to study and thrive will be increased. All the talk of kids being the future is put into action here. Educate a future generation – who can actually pay attention because their bellies are full – and you help to insure a better future for the community when these kids grow older.
It costs $75 to feed fifty kids, five times for a week. That means five days of one full meal a day where otherwise they might not have eaten. We are looking for donors to sustain this project.
Please consider a recurring monthly donation. Fifteen people donating $20 each per month would keep the project going indefinitely. If that option is beyond your budget, please consider a one-time donation, or a recurring monthly donation within your budget. This is relief, temporarily, but development long term. Having been there to see the results and faces firsthand, we know that it is a success now, and will continue to be into the future.
