Soup saved Kevine’s future.
Little Kevine was hungry. Living in a small village in rural Burundi, there weren’t a lot of opportunities for her family. They grew vegetables on the tiny plot of land outside their house, but it wasn’t enough to feed the whole family. Her father struggles with epilepsy, another concern for her family.
Over the years, she grew accustomed to the gnawing feeling in her stomach and the dizzy feeling in her head. Hunger was a part of her life.
There are crippling consequences for kids who go through life hungry. They struggle to concentrate. Malnutrition stunts their growth. What kind of future do hungry children have in this world?
For vulnerable families like Kevine’s, Food for the Hungry provides soup mix to supplement their diets. The soup mix is powerful! It’s packed with the vitamins and nutrients that kids need to develop and grow.
Kevine’s mother expresses her gratitude. “I am very thankful to FH for rescuing people in need and providing soup. If they were not supporting my family, we would have many problems.”
Kevine is now thriving! She wakes up with breakfast, ready to learn, grow, and play.
Every year, Canadian Gleaners societies provide millions of servings of nutrient-packed dried soup mix to FH, free of charge.
FH then ships the soup and works with families and meal programs in developing communities to combat hunger and malnutrition in their children.
