This year has been one of change in many different ways. Some of that change has been inconvenient, uncomfortable or even painful. But there has also been good change; new opportunities, relationships and space to consider what really matters.
As a charity, Feed The Hungry has needed to adapt to the new surroundings we find ourselves in. It would be easy to say that we’ve been disrupted by the circumstances, and that is wholly a bad thing. But the truth is that we’ve been given new doorways to walk through and new approaches to be able to serve in God’s Kingdom.
Despite what it may seem like as we watch media reports of the world falling apart, as an organisation, there have been some incredibly positive stories that have emerged in the past few months.
In Lebanon, following the explosion that decimated Beirut, hundreds of people in the UK have responded with compassion and kindness, donating financially to help Feed The Hungry’s partner in Lebanon, The Life Centre, to serve those affected by the crisis.
In Kenya, hundreds of facemasks, lovingly sewn by supporters in Staffordshire, have been distributed to vulnerable people in need.
In Nepal, in a particularly poor village, we supplied resources to support the drilling of a 100’ deep borehole, so that 400 residents could access clean water. There are already four more boreholes scheduled to be drilled in similar villages.
In Malawi, the Feed The Hungry team has gone door-to-door, distributing food packages and working with tribal chiefs to care for orphaned children. Our Director there, Praise Ijalasi, has reported that 400 people have turned in faith to Jesus!
And in the UK, over 50,000 meals have been distributed, along with Christian materials, to people facing food insecurity.
In this Field Report, we consider the changes and ways that we’ve needed to adapt to these new circumstances. But in and through it all, we know that God is working to bring about His Kingdom.
Thank you for your support in this vital work; we are so grateful to you for being a part of this ministry.
