Love requires action.
Early in 2013 Hope for the Island started feeding severely malnourished children a healthy meal per day. We anticipated success and the results have been incredible. We have always fed children healthy meals on our weekly outreaches because many kids are under nourished. However, for the severely malnourished we needed to step it up and fast.
With no intervention, many of these children die each year. The need for this outreach became clear during the follow up visits with the pregnant women who are part of our Prenatal Care program. When visiting these villages, we started hearing stories of kids who are neglected and eventually die. As we sought out more information, we were led to homes where we encountered these precious children in such horrific conditions.
