WHAT IS ONE DAY TO FEED THE WORLD?
Friends from churches, organizations and businesses give one day of their annual wages to help Convoy of Hope feed hungry people, meet immediate needs during times of disaster and give people hope.
The video below illustrates this “Giant Idea.”
HOW GREAT ARE THE NEEDS OF THE IMPOVERISHED AND HURTING?
These humbling facts should give you an idea:
- 1 billion people — a majority being women and children — are undernourished
- Every 3.6 seconds a person dies from hunger-related causes
- 16 million children die of hunger each year
- Every 6 seconds a child dies for lack of pure drinking water*.
*Stats from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations State of Food Insecurity in the World, 2008.
WHAT IMPACT CAN I HAVE BY DONATING ONE DAY OF MY WAGES?
Because of Convoy of Hope’s generous corporate partners every unrestricted dollar given to Convoy of Hope is leveraged into $7 worth of food, water and supplies. These products are then placed into the hands of impoverished people throughout the world who are in desperate need.
Taking part in One Day To Feed the World will:
- Help save the lives of poor and disadvantaged people throughout the world
- Feed hungry children and their families
- Provide comfort to disaster victims
- Give you and the people you help a sense of hope
