Each day millions of children suffer from hunger and malnutrition. These maladies delay their development, stunt their growth, make learning difficult and can even cause death. We find that unacceptable.
Ending world hunger requires holistic solutions. These solutions start with a warm bowl of food. Food is the doorway to providing a child with an education, a healthier living environment, clean water and an opportunity for a better life.
Currently, feedONE, an initiative of Convoy of Hope, feeds children in Tanzania, South Africa, Philippines, Nicaragua, Honduras, Kenya, Haiti, Guatemala, Ethiopia, El Salvador and the Dominican Republic.
While more than 177,000 children in 11 countries are being fed and cared for in our programs, we have tens of thousands more children on the waiting list.
$10 per month, the cost of a pizza, a movie ticket or a quick lunch feeds one child for an entire month.Why ONE?
Mother Teresa once said, “If you can’t feed a hundred, then just feed one.” We’ve taken her words to heart and believe that if this generation is unleashed to solve the planet’s great challenges, they will produce a whole new world.
Though this is just the beginning, caring people from across the country are joining feedONE in our mission to end hunger.
Why help?Our hearts are easily moved by the awareness of people in need. But it is not simply enough to be moved, we must act.Chris Sonksen, Executive Director of feedONE
