“Rico” is making the difference in the life of a girl named Amalia. She lives in Cuba and since she has been receiving a steady diet of nutritious meals, her health and energy levels have improved, making it easier for her to learn and play.
Our partners, Feed My Starving Children, sent us this report on Amalia and the “rico” she has been enjoying:
Amalia is a 7-year-old girl living in a depressed area of Havana, Cuba. Although food is available in her area, the nutritious value is questionable and there is also a lack of variety in the foods available. The fortified meals are an excellent basis of nourishment for these children and combined with any additional items, in this case eggs, it will meet all vitamins and minerals required at her age.
She has been receiving the food for a few months and the changes that she made are amazing. Amalia gained weight and has more energy to learn new things and play.
She thanks all those who made possible that she can eat this rice which she calls the Spanish word “rico” (good tasting).
Thank you to everyone who has made this mission possible.
Our efforts to reach more children like Amalia continue. But we can’t do it alone. It takes partnerships with people like you to be able to send this “good tasting” nutrition and hope to those who need it most. Will you join with us?
