Louise’s* life has been filled with difficulty. Her mother is sick with suspected Tuberculosis, and her younger brother recently died of unknown causes. Her father is a farmer and does his best to provide for their family, but they only have food when crops are in season. Louise had to stay home to take care of her sick mother and two younger siblings while her father worked. When she was able to go to school, Louise didn’t have the energy needed to sustain her throughout the day.
However, since Convoy of Hope partnered with her school to provide regular meals, Louise’s life has changed. Because her parents know she’ll get a hot lunch if she goes to school, Louise has almost perfect attendance. Louise believes the food she eats at school helps her be more productive. Not only is she no longer on the brink of starvation, she’s now in the running for class valedictorian and hopes to be an engineer one day.
The proper, regular nutrition Louise receives is making the difference in her life. Thank you for your steadfast support and the lasting impact you’re helping feedONE make in the lives of hundreds of thousands of children. We couldn’t do it without you!
