Sex for Food

The Food Fund helps people who are desperate. Desperation can creep stealthily in, such as during a prolonged drought, come crashing in as a result of a flood, earthquake, typhoon or war, or infect generations due to endemic poverty.

And then He introduces me to a few more among the "least of these" whose hardships I could not have imagined.

Hungry in Haiti

Wherever Heaven's Family staff members travel around the world, we often encounter very poor families who don't have enough to eat, something that is unfamiliar to most of us who live in developed nations. The causes of food insecurity vary. Whether because of a natural disaster, a barely-functioning economy, greedy political leaders, foolish economic policy, war, or the death of a family's primary wage earner, hunger always breaks our hearts. What if it were us in such a situation? we ask ourselves.
