Drought combined with a huge influx of refugees have made food scarce in northern Uganda. People are surviving on one meal a day, if that, and children are malnourished.
But thanks to generous people like you, help has arrived in many of these starving communities.
Like manna in the desert, boxes and boxes of nutrient-packed food are reaching the people who need it the most!
How did it get there?
It started with Feed My Starving Children, with whom we are so blessed to partner! Then, you came in to the picture with your financial support. Your gifts were responsible for shipping this food all the way to Africa, making sure it arrived at our Kinships in Uganda, and driving it out to remote villages and refugee camps.
Once this nourishing food reached its final destination, you got to be part of the best moments of all: seeing the smiles and relief on the faces of the people who receive it with open arms.
Like Beatrice, a struggling single mother. Kicked out of the house by her husband, this 30-year-old and her three children were left destitute. They were scraping by on corn mush or weevil-infested beans when they received some of the nutritious food you helped to provide. What a difference this will make for her and her children!
Or Jane, a 67-year-old woman who cares for her three youngest grandchildren. She said she was visited by an angel when she received the food you sent! Rice has become such a luxury item in northern Uganda, and Jane and her grandchildren were used to only getting one meal every day – if that. They are SO grateful for your provision!
On behalf of Beatrice and Jane, and so many more like them, thank you for being their angel! You stepped in at a time when they thought no one else could help them, and you told them they are not alone.
To make moments like these possible every month, sign up for a monthly gift to provide food now.
