Our executive director and program director recently visited Feed My Starving Children in Minnesota. FMSC has tackled world hunger since 1987 by sending volunteer-packed, nutritious meals to 70 countries. These meals are specifically designed to reverse and prevent malnutrition and are used in schools, orphanages, clinics and feeding programs to break the cycle of poverty.
We are in the process of partnering with FMSC to tackle the recent severe drought that has hit the horn of Africa region.
