In poverty stricken areas across the globe, millions of children go to bed hungry every night. Malnutrition among children under five continues to rise. Furthermore, limited access to resources and soaring food prices have made it next to impossible for the poor to improve their situation and break out of poverty.
Your gift of $25 will provide health and nutrition education to a poor child for an entire year, and help break the vicious cycle of hunger and poverty. The World Food Program (WFP) teaches children the basics of a healthy lifestyle, such as proper nutrition, safe hygiene, and HIV/AIDS prevention. The program focuses on the development of knowledge, values and life skills that will empower children to make the best health-related decisions for the rest of their lives. This self-sufficient solution to hunger will not only improve their quality of life, but the lives of future generations as well.
