Because of people like you, this 102-year-old Christian woman in Haiti receives a box of food each month.
Larosa Pretil lives in a widows’ village in Haiti. Our partners, Outreach Aid to the Americas, have been providing her with food since March. Despite the fact that she very much needed this food for her own survival, she shared it with her family. By the end of the month, she was out of food and walked four hours to her daughter’s house in the hopes that she would still have some food left to share. But thanks to this continuing outreach, she now receives a box of food each month.
Larosa’s old home was destroyed by the hurricane (top-left picture). She would’ve died had she not moved into her new home (right picture) before the hurricane struck. Praise God for His provisions!
But that’s not all we’ve done in Haiti. We are also feeding Haitian children thanks to our partnership with Fishers of Men Ministries. Through this feeding program, 4,000 students in 25 schools are being fed.
Haiti has an adequate amount of food resources, but because the nation is struck by poverty, there is a lack of employment and ability for families to provide healthy meals for their children.
These school feeding programs help families feed their children and make it possible for students to continue their education. It is hard for any student to concentrate on their school work on a hungry stomach.
Thank you to everyone who partnered with us to make missions like these possible. Will you join with us in feeding more people like Larosa? Will you make it possible for more children to attend school with their bellies satisfied?
