IF I COULD I WOULD …. love to climb out of your computer screen at this moment and give you all a huge hug for caring and BEING there when it mattered. We are still continuing with out SOS feeding program to widows and women in our area who have been suffering due to a disastrous planting and harvest season. It started with 6 elderly women from the community who were desperate and very hungry and it ended with a huge thunderous stream of ladies arriving each morning for food help as families were starving. . I was deeply touched by phenomenal friends who heard our plea for help and without hesitation moved into overdrive to help. Thank you to all who gave and made it possible for us to sustain nearly 180 women who were feeding families of up to 7 people on their ration. We are still feeding the ladies with all your donations and care until mid May where we will assess the situation again.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat”, are words that echo in my mind and heart. There are many reasons for hunger and as much as it is our responsibility to work toward addressing the cause issues, in the meantime we are called to compassionately respond to the human need. I echo these word from Dwight Lagore on the base as we fight together to help overcome the curse of poverty that is surrounding us.
