OOver 230 million people in India go to bed every night hungry. We experience this first hand as we visit various villages and slums of India. Millions of children’s lives are at stake. Many are forced to beg on the street, and or into child labor. There are incidents where parents sell their children for money.
World Food Program reports that India remained home to more than a fourth of the world’s hungry, 230 million people in all.
While India runs the largest child feeding program in the world, experts agree it is inadequately designed, and has made barely a dent in the ranks of sick children in the past 10 years.
42.5% of the children under 5 are underweight, a critical gauge of malnutrition.
Child malnutrition rates are worse in India than in many sub-Saharan African countries.
Through our Feed The Hungry outreach, we focus on feeding both children and adults. This may be the only good meal they have in many days. It is truly a joy to see the children so happy, simply enjoying a meal. We value human dignity and treat these people with respect. We intentionally create a great atmosphere for them to come and enjoy our ministry as well as the food that is provided for them.
