Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 23, 2013
Hanna Jane Trinidad, 14 years old, along with her three brothers, ate two small meals a day on a good day. At school, the Trinidad children were much thinner than their classmates. Her father, a seasonal construction worker in the Philippines, and her mother, a washer and sewer, could not make a combined income large enough to sustain their family of six at a healthy standard.
Donating worldwide to a family like the Trinidad’s has never been more accessible than with Food for the Hungry (FH)’s Christmas Gift Catalog that is available online throughout the end of the year. The catalog provides an easy way to choose from more than 30 gifts to help impoverished families earn a stable livelihood.
After becoming FH beneficiaries, the Trinidad family received two goats, which gave birth to eight kids. The Trinidads sold the young goats for income, which provided enough income to feed their children three meals a day.
Ryan Smedes, Director of Food Security for Food for the Hungry, said, “We have seen families thrive through this program, and it is truly a great way to make a huge positive difference in the life of a family this Christmas season.”
Through this online catalog, FH is directing gifts to almost 3,000 households in eight different countries. Goats, chickens, pigs, dairy cows and more are available to change a family’s life and help end malnutrition for children, like the children of the Trinidad family.
