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 South Africa. This outreach is now feeding more than 400,000 children in southern 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 16 million children!
Feeding by the Numbers and the Need
- Angola is counted among countries with the world’s highest under-five mortality rates.
- Malnutrition remains the leading complication in deaths of children under five in developing countries — nearly 3 million each year.
- Malnutrition is associated with about half of all child deaths worldwide.
Your gift of $30, $50 or $100 can help provide nutritious, lifesaving food for 3, 5 or 10 children for 3 months. 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 will provide hope for a better and brighter future for precious children.
At the center of LIFE Outreach International is a heart for sharing the life and love of Christ in both word and deed. 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.
