For Roxana, a single mom in El Salvador with no steady income and two little ones to care for, food is not guaranteed every day. The work she is able to find doesn’t always cover the high cost of food. “Right now, everything is expensive. Life is really hard,” Roxana said. She and her daughters, Kenia, 10, and 1-year-old Datne, have to “put up” with the hunger, she said. Datne is severely malnourished and not growing as she should.
Despite the grueling challenges she faces every day, Roxana doesn’t give up hope. Her strong faith and trust in the Lord get her through each day. “God will give me strength for the next day,” she said, “so tomorrow we’ll see what we’ll do. We must have faith that we’ll receive a blessing for tomorrow, to prepare something to eat.”
Your gift can make a lifesaving difference for hungry children. It costs just 11 cents to feed a child through Food For The Poor – that’s a penny increase from the dime it used to cost us to provide a meal. Please send your most generous gift today and give Datne and children like her the gift of a healthy future.
“Whoever welcomes one of these little children in
My name welcomes Me; and whoever welcomes Me does
not welcome Me but the one who sent Me.”
(Mark 9:37, NIV)
