As Covid19 affects people across the globe, it is the poor that are most deeply impacted. A global food crisis is looming and we want to do what we can to help.
With $20, we can feed a family of 5 for two weeks. We decided to donate $500 to feed 25 families in a village where we work in Rwanda. While our weavers are still working, most of their neighbors are not due to a lockdown and they identified 25 families who desperately needed food.
Several businesses and individuals reached out to contribute as well, and we realized we could make a greater collective impact. We identified families in Kenya who we could also provide with food and reached out to our friends at Jessie's Place in Rwanda, who are doing food distributions for families with severely disabled children.
Now our goal is to reach 120 families and match every dollar donated. Because we already have staff capacity and community partners, every dollar we receive will buy a dollar of food. The only additional overhead is exchange fees and delivery of food, which we will cover.
Please consider donating today. We will match every dollar and hope to reach our goal of $2400!
