Now, I’m able to cook and feed nutritionally rich food for my children. The health and well-being of my children is now far better than before.
Phoenix, Ariz. (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
Food for the Hungry (FH)’s Christmas Gift Catalog is available online for Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday shopping. It is an easy way to choose from more than 30 gifts to help people struggling in poverty. It can be done in a loved one’s name for a gift.
Chickens, vegetable seeds, fruit tree seedlings, water projects and more are available to change a family’s life and help end malnutrition for children. The catalog also offers an Emergency Response Gift, where you can give a gift to help Typhoon Haiyan survivors in the Philippines.
With your emergency response gift, you will help make food distributions possible, like the one that happened last week in Marabut and Basey where FH gave 4,078 families a week’s supply of rice, canned meats, noodles, sugar and coffee. Also, FH is creating child friendly spaces to keep children learning and playing in safe places, keeping them protected from abuse and sex trafficking during this chaotic time.
Catalog gifts are also used around the world, like Ethiopia’s Amhara region, where 25-year-old Habtam is a single mom raising three children and caring for her mother-in-law. As a recipient of six ounces of seeds, Habtam grew vegetables and fed her family for eight months with food from her garden. FH also gave Habtam six chickens that provide her family with protein rich eggs.
“After being part of this important program, I’m here with my beautiful, happy and healthy daughter applying the lessons I’ve learned,” says Habtam, beaming at her 1-year-old daughter Wubirist. “Now, I’m able to cook and feed nutritionally rich food for my children. The health and well-being of my children is now far better than before.”
