As the COVID-19 pandemic and severe drought in Zambia continue, starvation rates have reached new highs. This immense need has prompted us to respond with food relief and ensure food security through increased agriculture and livestock initiatives.
We expanded our work with three of our long-time community partners to provide 310,383 meals for over 3,000 children in their local schools. These feeding programs not only alleviate starvation, they create opportunities for us to work with communities to develop programs that solve ongoing
social problems and promote self-reliance. We continue in our commitment to empower local leaders to care for orphaned and vulnerable children—empowering communities to be founded in and driven by hope.
