Students at Hope Christian Academy in Bon Repos, Haiti, are making the grade. These amazing children are reading and writing beyond their grade levels and during national exams, they had a 90 percent passing rate. The problem?
“Many of our children walk to school on empty stomachs and leave at the end of the day with no expectation of a meal at home,” explains Frantz Schlesinger De Milord, executive director. “We started feeding them at the school, but it has been a challenge because we haven’t been able to do it consistently every day.”
To help address this need, a shipment of 9,237 life-sustaining meals packaged by volunteers with Feeding Children Everywhere are headed to the school. Students will not only be provided with a nutritious lunch, they’ll also be given meals to take home.
“Now, they can eat every day and share with their families,” De Milord beams.
Thank you, Hunger Heroes!
