Donations needed to provide food for children and their families
Your generous donations have allowed LCC to provide scholarships for children living in the tent city in Port-au-Prince, so that they can attend a Lutheran school. One of the things that the school provides is a hot meal for the children every day. For many of these children, that is their one good meal of the day. Last year, food kits containing rice, beans, oil, spaghetti, and milk were distributed to the children and their families so that they could continue to eat daily during the Christmas break.
The current humanitarian crisis in Haiti has made providing food for the children and their families all the more urgent.
We received the following request from Lophane Laurent, Field Director, Haiti:
Good morning everyone,
I want to thank you for continuing to support our poor children to go to school again this year. You know our difficulties, trouble in my lovely country. The kids that we sponsor to go to school are living close to the schools, and those schools are still open, and the kids are safe going to school.
This year if you think we should give the kids the same food we gave them in their kits last year, I think we should plan for $60 a child because everything has gone up. A 50-pound bag of rice that I used to buy in the past for $15 now costs almost $30. So the food now is very expensive. I can tell you that without LCC's support, all of our children would stay home without going to school. This is the reason why we are always praying for all of the members of LCC and for our donors and sponsors.
If it is possible for you, can you please add more children to receive the food package we share with our kids in December? I know how LCC supports my people to get food in this terrible moment. Thank you so much, and may God bless all of you.
Have a great day with God.
Please consider a donation to provide a Christmas present of food for the Haitian school children. $60 will provide a two-week supply of food for a child and their family.
LCC is asking for your help to provide a Christmas food kit for 100 children.
