No Hungry Children - https://nohungrychildren.org
No Hungry Children’s mission is to impact the lives of Children for the glory of God by sharing the love of Jesus Christ through feeding them physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. With nourishment of the Mind, Body, Soul and Spirit comes a brighter hope for the future, as the life expectancy of these children will rise with a regular diet. Our hope is that these children will have greater opportunity to exit the slums with a well-rounded primary education.
Most importantly, our aim is to present the Good News of Jesus to these children. And our expectation is that in His hands, they find the greatest hope and satisfaction. What can you get for a $1 contribution? 2 meals a day, 5 days a week, for 1 child in Nairobi, Kenya.
