SYRIAN REFUGEE CHILDREN
A mind-boggling 10.8 million Syrians have been driven from their homes by violence. War widows are trying to care for their families. Husbands despair of feeding their children because they can’t find work. Children lose hope for the future because they can’t attend school. Infants and the elderly are at risk in bitter winter temperatures. Using Global Hunger Relief funds, the International Mission Board and Baptist Global Response are providing food parcels and hygiene kits to families in need, but the needs far outstrip the resources being provided by supporters in the United States.
HUNGRY ALL WEEKEND
More than 22 million children in the United States qualify for free or reduced price meals through the National School Lunch Program. Many of these live in your community, perhaps even on your street. What happens to these children when they go home over the weekend? Combining Global Hunger Relief funds with local resources, the Backpacks of Hope Program provides nutritious, easy-to-prepare food that children can take home on weekends. You can partner with a local school to feed hungry children in your community.
