Some of these children have never known the feeling of a full tummy.
A bowl with a little rice and a hot dog. This is all some of these children had to eat on the day this photo was taken. Too many children on too many nights around the world go to bed hungry. You may say, “But I can’t feed all the hungry children in the world.” Wise people have these words of counsel, “Just help the one God puts in front of you.”
These children live at a garbage dumpsite in a large city in the Philippines. They scavenge through trash for food and clothing and even toothbrushes. They need protection from predators. They also need food, education and they need to know Jesus loves them. We have a pastor on site there who can see that they get all those things. Would you ask God about helping little ones like this?
Some of our Partners, Sponsors and Friends regularly send money to help provide food. We are thankful for that. All through the last school year, we sent more money to the Philippines for food than we received designated for that purpose. This current school year we have had to reduce what we send for feeding the children. It was a very hard decision because we knew what it meant. It means there is not enough money to buy food for them every day. Our prayer has been that God would provide for them, whether through us or in other ways. Our God is a big God. Working together we can meet this need.
You can be part of giving hope to some very poor children in the Philippines. Your gifts help feed the very poorest of children in body (food), mind (education) and spirit (the Gospel of Jesus).
