Just 13 cents provides a meal to a child facing starvation.

Right now 135 million people do not know where their next meal is coming from — and that number could double by the end of the year.

Because of COVID-19 and the resulting economic fallout, as well as mass unemployment and supply chain disruptions, people who already faced food insecurity are now struggling to survive.

You can help rush meals to people facing starvation. Every 13 cents you give provides a meal to a hungry child or family. Your gift will put nutritious meals into their hands — and provide opportunities for our local field partners to express the kindness of Jesus.

Across the world our partners tell us that people have lost their jobs due to COVID-19 lockdowns and cannot afford food. People are going hungry, with little to no access to food, healthcare, or other necessities.

The situation seems overwhelming, but you can make a difference!

With your help Unto™ will deliver 248,400 meals to people in nine countries, including Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. Together we can meet this goal and save people from starvation.

While many organizations are struggling to get supplies into tough places, we are able to continue our work through the Cru® 190+ country network. Our local partners will distribute the meals to families in need, build relationships, and share the eternal hope of Jesus at the right time.

Your gift can save lives and reveal hope. Just 13 cents is all it takes to make a real, eternal difference in a hungry child’s life.

You Can Provide Meals for a Hungry Child

Mom in East Africa shares, “I don’t know how we would have made it.”

Safa* is a refugee living in an East African country. She left her home in a neighboring country when she was only seven years old. It has not been easy, but she has made a life for herself. Now an adult she and her family have been sustained by meals, provided by faithful partners like you. Safa and her children are pictured with new blankets that they received with their meals.

Growing up in a foreign country that also has economic and political challenges was very tough on a young child like Safa. She got a job at the age of seven as a housemaid for a local family. Her employer provided shelter and food for her as she worked for them.

Safa married the watchman of her employer’s home. Her husband is also a refugee from another country. She and her husband eventually moved away from their employer’s residence to raise a family — four beautiful children. However, they struggled to provide food for their growing family.  

For the last six years, Safa, her husband, and her children have received meals because of your generosity. They started receiving them when their daughter, Ifrah, was born.

The family currently lives in a makeshift hut in an area where many other families in similar situations have settled. Occasionally Safa’s husband is able to get a job painting houses to provide for his family. And for the first time since she was a young housemaid, Safa has found a part-time job to provide income for her family.

These meals have sustained Safa and her family throughout the years. Access to a nutritious food source has kept them from begging on the streets. The meals have nourished her children and kept them going to school. Safa told our team, “Without this rice, I don’t know how we would have made it.”

Today her oldest son is in high school, and her daughter just started first grade. Her sons have joined the soccer team managed by Unto field partners. They have a bright future ahead of them.

You can help people like Safa and her family. Every 13 cents you give provides a meal to a hungry child or family and an opportunity to learn about the hope of Jesus!
