Imagine Not Eating for 2 or 3 Days…

This month we continue to highlight ministries within SOFM that are in need of funding… Last week we highlighted the Aslan Medical Clinic in Haiti… this week… The Grains of Grace Feeding Program. In 2012 a team of 8 went to Haiti. This team was made up of 3 adults and 5 high school students. Prior to going on the trip, we prayed for a way this team could leave behind a “memorial stone” for the people to continue for generations to come. With a donation of $1000, we went to Haiti and continued to pray. While on the trip we realized that the need was “food”. In 2012 it was common for an adult to go 2 or 3 days without eating a meal (small amount of rice and beans) and for children in a household to alternate days as to when they could eat. This was heartbreaking to hear.

The Grains of Grace Feeding Program was birthed from this team of high school students who wanted to make a difference for generations to come.

Now in 2023, 11 years later, this feeding program has continued to provide rice and beans every month for up to 95 families in Lac’ajue. Through this monthly program, families are able to count on this resource to feed their children while providing a little stability in their otherwise unstable life.

Over the years we have seen the children at the summer Bible clubs go from having red hair (a sign of malnutrition) runny noses and being very tired, to not having red hair, perhaps one or two out of 200 having a runny nose and all being very awake and energetic! This program is truly life changing!

Each month SOFM sends $1200 to cover the costs of rice and beans for the families in Lac’ajue. This fund is currently able to provide the rice and beans for 8 more months. This is why we want to make the need known. We appreciate your prayers and sharing this needs with others that may be able to help.
