Fighting Hunger in Haiti

Leave a comment


Imagine with me!  Just 1 meal a day, what would you choose to eat if you could only have just 1 meal.  Add to that, what if you have less than $2 to feed you and your family.  What would you purchase at the grocery store that would fill up hungry tummies for a whole day.  If you are like me, you can’t imagine because we are not forced to contemplate that kind of a life.


Those in Haiti face that each and every day.  Those who are fortunate make $2.50 a day but many do not.  They go from person to person to see what might been gleaned from those who have food.  So very hungry.


That is the reason why funds are collected from the donation/sale of fresh bread at the Columbia SDA Church.  Also why a few dollars each month are set aside from the sponsorship money so that we can give just a little relief to those family we serve.


Our last food distribution was in October.  As you can see, they received bags of dry food such as beans, rice, macaroni, corn and a bottle of oil.  It’s not much but it helps a little and they are so very grateful!


Over and over, they bow and hold out their hand in thanksgiving for the food.  They want you to know how very much they appreciate your thoughtfulness.  Most of all, they pray for you and ask blessings upon you!
