In 2016 SEEDS Newcastle organised a Pack for a Purpose to the Maasai Mara, in Kenya, to help to build a Secondary School for girls, and to volunteer at the primary school and local medical clinic with educational workshops and free immunisations and dentistry. The children were happy and grateful, but we noticed many of the 711 children from primary school would play during the lunch hours. When I asked the principal why they played instead of eating lunch, he said "The school don't have funds to feed everyone, so only those who bring the food will eat and although they share it with one another, the drought has been so terrible most don't have anything to eat all day". The kinder garden children were the only lucky ones to have a bit of pourrige simply because a lady had dropped by recently and made a donation to feed the little oens for the whole year. I was in tears for many days after that, asking myself what has happened to us that most people are dying from obesity, while there are children dyingof starvation and mal nutrition? We had to do something about it! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=LZNhys429ug The droughts in Kenya have been constant but we don't hear on the news. The children many times are missing school days because they got nothing to eat and don't have the energy to walk to school, let alone sit at a classroom and learn. You can help us to keep the kids and young adults coming to school, getting fed, and learning a new trade! This is not abougt feeding empty tummies, this is about giving them a hope for the future. Please donate whatever you can, but don't miss out on this opportunity to change at least one life.
