Can you imagine how much food you would need to cook a meal for 100 children?
Now imagine being able to provide a healthy, nutritious meal for 100 malnourished children – over 1,000 times. That is over three years worth of meals for 100 children!
Blessing the Children has been given the amazing opportunity to partner with Kids Against Hunger to ship and distribute a 20’ container packed with 142,560 meals to Ethiopia.
Blessing the Children currently has a child sponsorship program supporting 154 children but there are so many more children in Debre Zeyit and the surrounding villages that are not receiving support. The need is endless.
With these meals, we will be able to provide a lifesaving blessing to the children and families in the Debre Zeyit community and surrounding villages who we are unable to reach with the sponsorship program.
The specially formulated Kids Against Hunger meals contain fortified soy protein, dehydrated vegetables, rice, and vitamins and minerals. Although the meals are chicken-flavored, they are actually vegan and have a shelf life of up to 3 years. The container has been fully packaged by the KAH satellite in Monmouth, IL and is ready to go!
Now we need your help. In order to get this container to Ethiopia, we are in need of $7,400 for shipping costs. Would you consider making a donation to help bless the children and families of Debre Zeyit? Do you know someone you could share this need with?
