Imagine for a second that you are on your way to school, college or work in your cool air-conditioned car while the sun is scorching down on the ground outside. Your car halts as you pull up to a red traffic light. While you are waiting for the light to turn green, a boy, no older than the age of ten, dressed in tattered clothes, bare feet knocks on your window, starts to cry and begs for money. Between sobs and tears he begs you for money so that he can have just one basic meal of the day. This is just an example of how many children suffer to get just one meal a day. There are a countless number of such poor children in our country ‘Uganda’ and around the world who cannot afford even one solid meal per day but no child deserves to live in this hurting situation.
Every day, here children live unsure of their next meal. For them to get two meals a day it’s a miracle and they see it has a surprise.
But why are so many children suffering from hunger?
1. Affordability: Uganda has a high food cost rate. The amount of money that you have influences the type and quantity of food that you can buy. Imagine now feeding 279 children when you’re left with only $50 in your pockets.
Childhood hunger is a major problem at our orphanage - but it is solvable. Donate to feed hungry kids and help us end child hunger. You can save a child from starvation; your gift provides a crucial food and care to less fortunate children here at God’s Village.
