While thousands of Muslims across the globe are filled with great anticipation of what this blessed and spiritual month brings, others, including orphans, widows, seniors, children and the disabled, are dealing with the struggles their daily life brings.
In schools across Kenya, hunger is a persistent problem. Poverty restricts families from eating proper meals and children are more often than not, the silent victims.
Imagine how starved we would feel if we were forced to skip a meal or two every day.
Imagine a child, in our world of plenty, passing his/her days and nights in hunger.
Imagine the cries of a child who suffers from hunger pangs.
Imagine the empty seats in schools because hunger affected the children’s ability to learn.
Imam Ali (as) used to spend his nights feeding the poor. We can too.
Tonight, before you go to bed, please feed a famished child by making a donation to The World Federation’s FILL MY CUP APPEAL. Hunger doesn’t wait for anyone.
The difference we can make in the life of a hungry child is only as good as the support of our donors.
Please share this appeal with your family and friends.
FILL MY CUP APPEAL: DONATE TODAY
The World Federation’s ‘Fill My Cup’ Appeal is a daily in-school breakfast program that has been providing a hot cup of nutritional porridge breakfast to children across 29 schools in Kenya since 2011. Through this program, children are motivated to attend school regularly. We have seen that consistent meals results in regular attendance which then results in improvements in the student’s academic grades. Filling their tummies with healthy food allows the students to stay healthy and learn better.
957 pre-primary students in Kenya miss breakfast each morning. The total cost of providing all of these children a hot breakfast every morning for two school terms (January to August) is £11,900 GBP / $17,900 USD-CAD.
The cost of sponsoring a breakfast is as follows:
