This week is World Hunger week. Last week in the Swazi Times they ran an article about a grandmother and the grand kids she is raising who eat dirt to ease an empty stomach. She digs it and eats it right there but mixes it with water for her grand kids to help them swallow it.
Would you stop 30 seconds to pray for this woman, these two children and the 800 million people worldwide who don’t have enough to eat? Contemplate what your life would be like if you had to eat dirt and feed it to your children.
I’ve inserted the picture of the woman who has to eat dirt to survive and feeds it to her grand children. And yes, I did write that three times in the last 100 words and yes I did do that on purpose.
Every year we import 6 containers of fortified rice into Swaziland to help us feed the children we’re working with. Each one costs $10,000 for 280,000 meals. If you want to do something financially to help you can do so here.
