ACADEMY SCHOOL FEEDING PROGRAM
• Many of the school children don’t eat every day because their families have very little money. Sometimes they are given “cakes” made from mud to satisfy their hunger – this has no nutritional value at all and promotes diseases due to contamination.
• Many children were fainting from hunger at School Assembly before the Feeding Program was started.
• In the last three months, we have fed 16,802 school children at a cost of about $600 a week. Usually the meal consists of rice and beans and this might be served with coconut and a vegetable sauce. At present meals are provided three times a week but hopefully this can be increased to every school day if we can raise sufficient funds.
• A dedicated kitchen has been built for this program and a few Haitian women and men are employed for cooking and supervising these meals.
• Nourishment of the brain and body is essential for the children to benefit from the education they are given.
• Save your lose change – it’s amazing how it adds up and remember that just a few dollars can make a huge difference to a starving child.
• Your generosity is, as always, very gratefully appreciated.
