On a good day, 6-year-old Larry has a spoonful of beans and drinks a bit of coffee. At 7 a.m., he walks to school with a tattered notebook and his only pencil. He loves to learn, but his empty stomach makes it difficult to focus.
Like many impoverished families in the Caribbean and Latin American, the family lives in a tiny shack that has no bathroom or electricity. Larry’s mother, Danelia, sits under a bare bulb at her brother’s home to help Larry with his schoolwork. Every day, she prays the Lord will turn things around to allow her little boy to stay in school.
You can change the life of a hungry child like Larry!Thanks to a generous friend of Food For The Poor, every dollar you give up to $500,000 will be matched with a dollar’s worth of food through September 5, 2022. This means your gift will go further to help save the lives of more precious, vulnerable children.
“I get up every morning and the first thing that I do is ask God for food … that we are able to have food for us,” Danelia said. “I pray for my family and my son, and his classes at school. At night, I talk to Him [God] again and ask for food for the next day. I thank Him because I know He sends me help.” Please send your loving gift today to be matched and give more children hope for a brighter future.
