That’s how our ENTIRE staff felt as we started a “normal” week last Monday after 6 weeks of intense food buying.
Black eye peas (110+ TONS), June corn (180 TONS), rice (27 TONS), peanuts (1.5 TONS), Juko beans (1.7 TONS), Montega beans (1.5 TONS), and FINALLY, the big finale with the buying of the 127 TONS of July “super dry” corn from our Pastors.
I’m a giver, so now for the fun part! All that went into the barns must now go out to help those in need.
The first week of AUGUST, we begin distributing food to over 2,300 village orphans in Balama and Meluco Districts. These orphans all raise what they can in their family’s fields, but it won’t last them all year long.
With your help, we give them a helping hand for the 4 hot and dry months when little will grow. (Aug., Sept., Oct., and Nov.)
