The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor. Proverbs 22:9
LIFE’s Mission Feeding outreach is our promise to “be there” for hungry, malnourished and starving children.
Mission Feeding began in 1989 with a challenge to feed 5000 starving children in South Africa. This year, more than 400,000 hungry and starving children in southern Africa are receiving food and ministry daily through the work of Mission Feeding.
Because of crop failures and food shortages, LIFE’s Mission Feeding lines are getting longer and longer with children waiting for food.
Currently, Angola continues to have one of the world’s highest mortality rates for children under age 5, and Malnutrition is the leading cause.
Those who manage to survive severe malnutrition often face recurring sickness, faltering growth and diminished learning ability.
Malnutrition, starvation and suffering can cease by simply providing children the nutrition they need, and that’s what Mission Feeding does with every bowl of food, given in Jesus’ Name.
