In Guatemala, many young children suffer from severe malnutrition, resulting in developmental delays and lifelong disorders.
Below are just a few of the many testimonies we receive about lives being impacted and transformed by the Food Ministry of Heaven’s Family.
“Being at the program changed my life!” says Naomie. Before we reached her, Naomie and her three daughters had been scrounging out their survival for two years at a Kenyan garbage dump. Back then, she recalled, Naomie and the children went hungry most weeks; sometimes they would have nothing to eat for a whole day and night.
Little Loise from Kenya has suffered much hardship in her young life. She was born with HIV/AIDS and became an orphan when both her parents died of the disease. She was taken in by her elderly grandmother, who was poverty-stricken and unable to work much. Because she struggled to feed Loise regularly, this beautiful little girl went hungry. Their situation was desperate, and Loise could easily have died from the combination of HIV and malnutrition.
We have a valued partner in Puebla, Mexico who focuses on rescuing children from sexual exploitation. These victims have suffered terrible abuse, chronic neglect, and/or total abandonment. When we can rescue them from the evil clutches of exploitation on the streets, we can set them on a path toward thriving and prepare them to be all God has planned for them to be!
