As people, we tend to focus on the big things that take place, sometimes forgetting about the little things. But the little things are miracles just like the big and though we sometimes take them for granted, they do serve a purpose.
Water, even food, seem like trivial things to us as Americans. If we run out of food, we just hop in our car and drive to the nearest grocery store. But have we really ever actually been out of food? Probably not. Maybe our favorite foods are gone, but there is always something still left.
Now, take a moment and think about these children in Zambia. They don’t have big kitchens with pantries well stocked with their favorite foods- in fact, many children don’t have kitchens at all, let alone the food inside. There is nothing. If they’re hungry, well, tough luck. There is no car to take them to the nearest store, and definitely not enough money to buy food, not even the cheapest sort.
If you were in their shoes, what would you think? It makes me feel somewhat guilty. I am provided with three plentiful meals everyday and a snack in the afternoon. If I’m hungry before then there’s food in the fridge. And yet there are children out there that have nothing. No breakfast when they wake up. No lunch at school if they’re even lucky enough to be in school. No dinner. Nothing. Take a moment and think about that.
It doesn’t always seem like there are ways that we can help. But there are! With the donations we are receiving, we have been able to provide food for these children! Food, no matter how little it is, can truly make a difference in the life of a child.
But we need your help! It costs quite a bit of money to feed hundreds of hungry children every day. So I’d like to ask that you’d please consider sponsoring a child. These children really do need your help!
May God bless you.
