Breaking the Cycle of Malnutrition
Malnutrition remains a serious, life-threatening crisis around the world — especially throughout the continent of Africa, where both drought and floods deplete crops and wipe out the harvest, causing children to lack the daily nutrition they need to grow healthy and strong. But Mission Feeding provides LIFE for starving children when they need it most.
Mission Feeding began in 1989 with a challenge to feed 5000 starving children in Mozambique. This outreach is now feeding more than 350,000 children across Africa every day with the help of friends like you. To date, Mission Feeding has been instrumental in helping save the lives of more than 18 million children by providing food, clothing, and medical assistance for children and families throughout Africa.
Feeding by the Numbers and the Need
- South Sudan is counted among countries with the world’s highest under-five mortality rates.
- Nearly half of all deaths in children under 5 are attributable to undernutrition; undernutrition puts children at greater risk of dying from common infections, increases the frequency and severity of such infections, and delays recovery.
- Malnutrition is associated with about half of all child deaths worldwide.
Much of the time, Mission Feeding works in partnership with local schools, offering children nutritious food as they further their educations and build futures with more opportunities. Your gift can help provide hope for a better and brighter future for precious children.
Every time mission partners feed malnourished and starving children, they are provided the opportunity to share the story of Christ and His love. The orange bowls are a reminder of the spiritual nourishment we receive from our Heavenly Father and a reminder that someone (like you) cared enough to provide LIFE when needed most.
