Food For The Poor has been offered more than $17 million worth of food and other aid for Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica and Nicaragua. Poor families throughout the Caribbean and Latin America live in extreme poverty, earning less than $1 a day and struggling to feed their children. With so many children just like little 9-year-old Cristian in Nicaragua suffering from lack of food, how could we turn away such a generous, lifesaving gift?
The problem we face is this: we need your help to ship this lifesaving food and other aid. We gratefully accepted this donation, and we have faith that we will receive enough help to accomplish this feat. Your gift allows us, for every $1 you give, to ship $17.16 worth of food and aid to help severely malnourished children like Cristian, whose mother, Flor de Maria, begs neighbors to help her feed Cristian and keep him from dying of severe malnutrition. “If we lose our son, I feel we lose our lives…” Flor said.
Your gift today to ship critically needed food and other aid will multiply more than 17 times to save starving children. That means for every $1 you give, $17.16 worth of food and aid will be shipped. Imagine how many families and children in Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica and Nicaragua we could help.
Please, give what you can today, knowing that you are helping more than one hungry and suffering child with your gift. We are thankful for your kindness toward the poor.
and to share what you have;
God is pleased by sacrifices of that kind.”
