Save Children Suffering from Hunger

For most of us, the purpose of schools is education, but in some parts of the world, schools are a home as much as they are a place of learning, providing shelter and food for the most vulnerable. This is especially important in this region of Africa, where thousands of children go to bed each night without a meal in their stomach.

Recently, this number has increased drastically in the region due to various factors, and if we don’t all act soon, many children could die in the coming months.

One area that deserves particular attention is the Torit Diocese, located in Nimule. Currently, we are working with the missionary Brothers of St. Martin de Porres to support the children and orphans in Nimule through the St. Comboni primary school. The main liaison between the two is Brother James Othembi, who has been the primary spearhead of this initiative.

 

As Brother James has informed us how, in the past, many orphaned children were forced to prepare their own meals with what little food was available. Luckily, St. Comboni primary school was able to hire a someone who could help with food preparation, but they are still in dire need of food.

Due to constant droughts and now with mass locust infestations in the region, it’s difficult for crops to grow and thrive. The recent Covid pandemic has also halted food shipments in many places.

This is why we need your help. Your donations will be used to help fund new shipments of rice, yellow beans, and sorghum to the people of Nimule, in particular the children and orphans attending St. Comboni Primary School.

Remember, most children don’t even get a meal outside of school, so your donation can assure that they’re getting a much-needed food. We hope that you’ll find it in your heart to donate to this program today so that we can help fill hundreds of empty stomachs.

Trying to Rise Up from the Ashes

Sister Anne Wandia wakes up every morning with a single purpose and mission – to give displaced families of the Wau refugee camps a chance to start again.

Torn from homes, villages, and peaceful agrarian lives, thousands have fled to the Wau refugee camps through the years, when violence or disaster swept through their communities without warning.
