It's a startling reality that 2 out of every 5 children in Ethiopia are stunted due to malnutrition. Ethiopia loses 16.5% of their GDP each year to the long-term effects of malnutrition, and hunger leads to problems in school and health that impact a child for a lifetime. We are combatting hunger in Ethiopia in three ways:
We provide breakfast and lunch to the children in our program at the BCI Academy, ensuring that the children receive two square meals per day. For $30 USD, you can provide meals for a child for a full month.
Every sponsored child receives monthly grain support, including foods like pasta, rice and teff. We also supply every child with peanut butter as a source of protein, as well as cooking oil and lintel. For $30 USD, we can feed an urgent needs child for 30 days.
We provide access to nutritious meals to the neediest members of the Debre Zeyit community through periodic feeding days. For $600 USD, you can provide a warm meal to 100 needy men, women and children along with music ministry.
