Be a Child’s Guardian Angel this Mother’s Day

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (May 2, 2016)  Food For The Poor’s Spring 2016 Gift Catalog can help you find the perfect Mother’s Day gift.

Forget the flowers that are destined to wilt, and choose to honor Mom with a heartfelt gift from the charity’s catalog. All gifts are uniquely designed to improve the lives of poverty-stricken children and families that struggle to survive in developing countries.

For $34 a month, you can share a mother’s love by sponsoring a child through Food For The Poor’s Angels Of Hope program. Your gift will provide orphaned and abandoned children throughout the Caribbean and Latin America with food, shelter and access to medical care and an education. The charity has expanded its Angels Of Hope program, so now there are more children than ever in need of monthly sponsors.

Even if you are a student, the catalog offers meaningful ideas for your special Mom, while remaining within your budget. For $20, you can provide a year’s worth of school supplies for a child, or for $90, you can show your Mom she raised a good "kid" by giving a goat in her honor for a family in need. Your gift will grow and multiply to supply the family – and someday possibly the community – with a nutritious source of protein.

Because Food For The Poor acquires food in large quantities, you can feed a starving family of four for just $14.60 a month, or a hungry child for a whole year for $43.80.

"Every day, millions of children are forced to go hungry, thousands suffer from severe malnourishment, and their mothers are helpless to save them," said Angel Aloma, Food For The Poor’s Executive Director. "When children cry out in pain, it breaks the parents’ hearts because they do not have food, clean drinking water and medicines to give their children – in some cases, to save their lives."

Food For The Poor also remains committed to moving destitute families out of unsafe living conditions and into new, permanent homes. A gift of $3,200 will build a single-unit home with sanitation and give children a chance for better futures.

Food For The Poor, one of the largest international relief and development organizations in the nation, does much more than feed millions of the hungry poor in 17 countries of the Caribbean and Latin America. This interdenominational Christian ministry provides emergency relief assistance, clean water, medicines, educational materials, homes, support for orphans and the aged, skills training and micro-enterprise development assistance, with more than 95 percent of all donations going directly to programs that help the poor.
