May 29, 2012: Feeding The Nation partnered with Food For Kidz and Hunger Plus as we shipped 43,500 pounds of food.
The fortified rice casserole packages of food went to the Association Casa de Esperanza (House of Hope). There are approximately 3,000 children being fed in the areas of Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula and Santa Ana. The primary outreach is at their orphanage House of Hope.
In the poverty stricken areas in Honduras, the average age for a mother is 15 years old. So children are having children. The parents are not equipped to feed a child and have no resources for raising a child. As a result, many children are orphaned or stay in the streets or dumps looking for food and anything that would help them through the day.
The 40 foot container arrived on July 12, 2012.
May 24, 2012: The 40 foot container arrived at For His Kingdom Ministries. The distributions are now taking place.
