The Malalo Sports Foundation (MSF) of Zambia, a sporting non-profit organization, has set up a fundraiser to help feed the children of Zambia during the COVID-19 global pandemic. They have done this in collaboration with the American Overseas for Medical Aid and Assistance (AOMAA), a 501(c) non-profit organization.
With the current lockdown due to COVID-19, Zambian children are facing food shortages and are going hungry every day. The restricted movements in the area in order to limit the spread of the virus have brought forth the immediate need to provide food supplements to help these children and their families. The food insecurity in Zambia is a rising concern: 62% of Zambia's population are living off of less than $2 a day, and over 40% of them are considered to live in extreme poverty (under $1.25 a day) (HabitatforHumanity, 2017). Their food reserves are at risk of being consumed very quickly. A family of six needs $5 USD of food each day.
Your donation will not only go towards the purchase of food, but also to obtain masks and sanitary equipment for these children and their teachers as schools start to open back up for examniation classses.
Any amount you can donate would be helpful to the children of Zambia. Please share this with your friends and family. Together we can help make a difference in their lives!
