#TRI2FEED: I’m on my own.

When was the last time you felt like you were on your own? Maybe it was in your rec-league basketball game where you had to hit an important free throw. When your spouse was gone on a business trip. After you moved cities.... Today as I walked into the YMCA pool for my early morning swim training, I noticed the pool was smooth as glass and I was all on my own. My coach joins me two days a week, but this was not one of them. There were absolutely no other swimmers in the pool and the lonely lifeguard gave me a good morning wave from the other end as I grabbed a kick-board and fins to start my drills.

Feeding The Nations provided food for people who have fled ISIS and have assembled in refugee camps in northern Iraq. Many have only the clothes they had on their backs when they left. The majority of the refugees are women and children, as many of the men left to fight or were killed helping their families flee. We were able to reach these people thanks to a partnership with the U.S. military. Through the Denton Program, the U.S. military ships relief supplies free-of-charge when space is available on aircraft. NGOs working where the U.S. has operations can use the program to reach citizens in … read more>>
