Cambridge Community working with Kids Against Hunger© Nationwide to provide Four Million Meals for
Starving Children and their Families
Women and children in northern Africa are facing a painful death by starvation as famine conditions have worsened in the region known as the Horn of Africa. Famine-like conditions are threatening the lives of more than 12 million people in drought-stricken Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia. The United Nations is calling the crisis the world’s most serious humanitarian disaster in over a generation.
The crisis in the Horn of Africa is worsening every day and will continue for the next several months. Almost half of the population in Somalia is malnourished and one child in three is suffering severe malnutrition. Thousands of people have already died of starvation as they flee to refugee camps along the Somalia border in northern Kenya and southern Ethiopia. The famine is also severe in drought-impacted Ethiopia, Sudan, and Tanzania.
Food and water are desperately needed now to save the lives of tens of thousands of children. For that reason, Kids Against Hunger-Cambridge will increase production immediately to help feed these starving children. KAH-Cambridge will join with other Kids Against Hunger© USA satellites and the relief organization World Help (Forest, VA) to produce, ship and deliver over 4 million high protein meals within the next few weeks.
Kids Against Hunger-Cambridge feeds a starving child a high protein meal for under 20 cents a day. That means it costs less than $73 for feeding a child for a year. This incredible achievement has been accomplished through very intentional efforts to enlist volunteers, maintain minimal overhead and keep fixed costs extremely low. Each volunteer that packs for 2 hours can produce enough food to feed a child for one year. Arrange to have your group come in soon to pack the meals that will save lives.
