The Burden of Poverty

Four-year-old Wensley doesn't know what a full stomach feels like. He only knows the pain of a bloated belly, a common side effect of malnutrition. The somber little boy sometimes only has boiled leaves to eat. On a good day, it's a small spoonful of rice. When the hunger pains are too much to bear, he cries and holds his belly until he falls asleep. But there is no relief when he wakes up.

"If I don't have any money at all, he has to stay like that because there's nothing I can do," his mother, Erese, said.

Erese looks for anything she can scrounge to feed Wensley and his siblings. Sometimes, it's only a handful of leaves from the mountainside where her broken shack sits in Haiti, or breadfruit seeds from yesterday's meager meal.

Today, you can ease the burden of poor families like Wensley's and help answer their desperate prayers for food. Your gift will put lifesaving meals of rice and beans on the plates of hungry children.

Please give today and help save the lives of malnourished children.
