A few weeks back, we sent a large container of food to our school in Congo through our friends at Lifeline.
Due to the conflict in Ukraine, there has been an increase in fuel prices which has also caused a surge in food prices. Many families have said they’ve been forced to send their kids to bed hungry.
Through the distribution, roughly 4,000 households were reached. This was made up of primarily students at our school in partnership with Justice Rising as well as their other schools in the region. It also helped about 1,000 other vulnerable families in the area.
Every Love Does student and their family was able to take home dried beans, rice and veggies. All the families were incredibly grateful to receive meals at a time when they needed it most.
That’s what love does – it helps our neighbors both near and far.
We’re thankful for your generous support as we continue to serve our schools around the world.
