Mother’s Day Spring Gift Catalog: A Gift Can Soothe the Cries of a Hungry Child
COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (May 5, 2022) Parenting has never been easy, especially for those in developing countries. Mothers are frequently the sole breadwinners for their families in many of the poverty-stricken Caribbean and Latin American countries helped by Food For The Poor.
This Mother’s Day, caring donors can honor and celebrate their mothers’ lives by also blessing the most vulnerable with a gift from FFTP’s Spring Gift Catalog.
“It’s such a wonderful feeling when we can show love for our mothers and at the same time show love and hope for millions of others,” FFTP President/CEO Ed Raine said. “Honoring mom can bring hope and blessings into other people’s lives.”
Food insecurity has nearly doubled, affecting 3.3 million people, according to the United Nations World Food Programme. The rising inflation created by the COVID-19 impact on the global economy has become a threat to impoverished and vulnerable families in countries helped by FFTP. Food is a lifesaving gift at a time when the world is experiencing one of the worst food shortages in history.
With your gift, you can help put an end to a child’s cries. A gift of $73 can feed a hungry child for an entire year, while a gift of $25 can feed an entire family for a month.
Donors can provide a gift of 20 baby chicks for $30. Baby chicks grow quickly, providing vulnerable families not only with a sustainable source of protein in the form of eggs, but also with extra income from egg sales.
Rice and beans are an important meal that gives children who would otherwise go hungry vital nutrients. A $40 donation will fund the distribution of 100 pounds of rice and beans.
For a child living in poverty, a computer opens the door to a different world. Schoolchildren who learn computer skills are better prepared to continue their education and compete in the workforce. Your $100 gift provides a school with a fully equipped computer workstation.
