While our focus is on education, the lack of basic needs can sometimes create challenges that make learning difficult or impossible. Without food, basic housing, or urgent medical care a child cannot focus and learn.
*Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, baskets of mixed food are suspended, instead we are giving critical staples of corn, beans, rice, and eggs. This food will sustain the families for longer periods. If you have sent a basket of food, the family will receive the above listed foods for the amount that was sent.*
Chronic malnutrition and worry affect a child’s ability to learn; a secure home and food security allows that child to focus and thrive. There are some families that need urgent aid, such as for a medical emergency, loss of a family member, or natural disaster. While others may need ongoing help to get back on track, such as a single mother without enough food for her children or an injured father who cannot work.
With a donation for family aid, we are able to help those families with shelter, food, and medical assistance.
Donations can be made for a specific situation or to the general fund for any urgent need.
