Three more in Project Food and More

Three more deserving kids have joined our Project Food and More Program, bringing the kid count to 29. Project Food and More provides care packages to destitute children who have lost one or both parents to HIV. They and their guardians are very poor, and are referred to us by a local HIV clinic in the area.

One of the kids, a seven-year-old boy, lives with his mom in Mysore. He lost his dad a few years ago and mom cleans houses for a living, earning about 1000 rupees (about $12) a month. Another girl, 12 years old, lost her mom and dad a few years ago, and lives with her grannie. The third girl, age eight, also lives with her grannie, as she recently lost both her mom and dad to HIV.

If you'd like to help these kids, or kids like them, please read more here. For just $25 per month, you can provide healthy and nutritious food and hygienic items to these destitute kids and their caretakers.
