There will always be hungry children in this world. There shouldn’t be but unfortunately there are.
Levison wanted to feed the 200 or so orphans and vulnerable children in his village and surrounding area. However, there are no big charities feeding children in schools in the far North of Malawi. So more and more children come. Some walk 20km to reach the Centre. To reach their one proper meal of the week.
It only costs £15 to feed a malnourished child one proper meal every week for a year. Multiply that by 600 (which is the average number of children turning up each Saturday for food…….that’s £9,000!! We just don’t have £9,000 per year.
For sponsored child at primary school £5 per month goes towards the feeding programme. So, in theory, if we had 150 primary school age children sponsored, this would cover the cost of the feeding programme for all the children supported by the Foundation. Currently, we have approximately 30 children who are still at primary school who are fortunate enough to have sponsors. Please can you help us find more sponsors?
Whilst we recognise that lots of people have struggled during the last year with financial issues due to covid, there are those who haven’t had to buy lunch at work or pay for travel costs to and from work each day. Would you be able to spare 85p per day…..that’s all each child needs. Together we are #changinglives
