Kids Against Hunger would like to thank the Greater Greenwood Chamber of Commerce for coming out and celebrating our ribbon cutting with us.  We were able to recognize volunteers for their efforts in getting the build-out done for us and introduce our organization to some of the chamber board members.  We look forward to growing our relationship with the Chamber and the Greater Greenwood area!

The Struggle To Rebuild Four Months After Haiyan and How KAH Is Helping

Unloading KAH food for distribution.
Recovering from a natural disaster as severe as Typhoon Haiyan is a daunting task for anyone but of the ultrapoor families taht KAH food reaches through ICM, the burden seems overwhelmingly impossible.  Resources were already limited before the storm struck for these families who were living on US $.50 per day.  Now they must save every peso so they can rebuild their homes and livelihoods that Typhoon Haiyan absolutely destroyed.  Kids Against Hunger's generous support of ICM has impacted many families still recovering from Thyphoon Haiyan - specifically those living on the Philippine islands of Bohol and Cebu.  ICM has also shared NutriPacks with other NGO's in Samar and Leyte.  KAH has provided NutriPacks to families in need of healthy meals.  NutriPacks provide so much more than nutritional meals.  They provide hope to families in seemingly hopeless situations.

Community in Cebu happy for their NutriPacks

ICM disaster relief teams have completed 66 distributions, reaching 28,575 hungry families with relief supplies to date.  Your generous donation of NutriPacks has played a crucial role in reaching suffering faimlies in Cebu and Bohol.  This is invaluable support as families have to focus a great amount of energy on rebuilding their homes and livelihoods in addition to finding nutritional meals.  Many individuals are saving as much money as they can so they can by G.I. sheets and other materials to begin rebuilding.

Typhoon Haiyan affected families still recovering from the massive earthquake, as well.  Bohol was severely wounded before Haiyan hit the northern part of the island.  Although the typhoon did not devastate Bohol as severely as Cebu, the power outages posed a serious obstacle to recovery.

Hermes and Nora's home

Pastor Hermes and Nora lost their home and their church during the earthquake.  They are still living in a tent as their makeshift home and their church is a tarpaulin thateveryone can gather underneath for worship.  When asked about her community's biggest need, Pastora Nora answered, "People are coming to find shelter and a place they can be cared for and loved and where they can call home."

foodforpoor

Food For The Poor is the largest international relief and development organization in the United States, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy. Founded in 1982, this interdenominational Christian ministry serves the poorest of the poor in 17 countries throughout the Caribbean and Latin America.

20130319-22 hai hp0663Kids Against Hunger-Greenwood is proud to be a strategic partner with Food For The Poor working to end hunger in this part of the world.  In 2012, our satellite along with sponsor groups such as FFA and partner churches sent hundreds of thousands of meals to Haiti and Guatemala through Food For The Poor. In that same year, Food For The Poor shipped 3,414 containers of aid and built 6,805 new housing units.

In March of 2013, our director, Larry Moore traveled to Haiti to see the feeding programs and help prepare Kids Against Hunger meals for the starving children in orphanages run by Food For The Poor.

Last October, the FFA sent 500,000 meals to Haiti.  Click here to read about how Food for the Poor is making a difference in the Western Hemisphere.
