Don't let a child's future be destroyed by hunger
Our feeding programmes reach children that larger programmes cannot. The United Nations defines absolute poverty as living on less than US$1.25 a day. But for far too many people, this amount is a dream, a goal they strive towards, and they cannot provide for even the most basic needs of their families.
We see children come to school hungry, undernourished and weakened, which in turn leaves them unable to concentrate. They fall further and further behind. Their grades suffer, affecting their futures. Instead of training for skilled, better paid jobs which will lift them, their families and communities out of poverty, they are condemned to a life of menial work that pays a pittance, and the cycle of suffering goes on.
At World In Need supported programmes, we see children coming in starving time and time again.
But together we can make a difference!
