Did You Know …
Southern Africa has the largest number of orphans in the world? There are 2.2 million orphans in South Africa alone…and 65% of them live at home where the head of the household is a teenager.
They need a chance to reach their teens and beyond with improved quality of life and hope. Our feeding programme is helping to make this happen…
What Food4Africa Does
Food4Africa UK is a charity that helps to raise awareness of the needs of orphans in Southern Africa’s most needy communities. We raise money to feed children a healthy daily meal.
Our message is positive which is why we show you photos of our children smiling. Children are inherently positive. When their basic needs are met, such as one healthy meal a day, they smile, they are happy. Of course we see many sad children. Our message is that we can (and do!) make them happy. The more smiles we see, the more we know we are making a difference.
Since 2006, we have been working closely with Food4Africa in South Africa (www.food4africa.org) to distribute a nutritionally rich ‘porridge’ made from a precooked maize and soya base, enriched with 19 minerals and vitamins. We are proud to say that the whole Food4Africa organisation now feeds 17,000 children every day.
One simple meal a day has extraordinarily positive effects on children by improving their weight gain and well-being.
Food4Africa’s aims for children are to:
- Alleviate hunger and poverty
- Maximise energy levels and enhance immune systems to fight off diseases
- Develop ‘brain’ potential for future learning
- Promote better concentration and a sense of well-being
- Make it easier for them to cope with everyday schooling
