Drought conditions continue and food remains scarce for the impoverished families we serve, but we are committed to FEED THE CHILDREN! Up to 150 children are visiting the Children’s Center for daily meals, and more than 200 come on Saturdays, when the Center feeds meat to children, giving them a good dose of protein. Providing proper nutrition is critical for our extremely vulnerable population. To reach the children who live to far to walk to the Center, we provide bulk groceries to the households. Food includes maize, beans, rice, cooking oil, cowpeas (for the HIV infected, for added protein), and salt.
