Agriculture Projects Save Lives

Mothers like Habtam struggle every day to feed their children. She couldn’t buy food, and little grew in her Ethiopian plot’s rocky soil. It tore at her heart to watch her children suffer from malnutrition. But generous donors brought an agriculture program that gave Habtam gardening tools and seeds.

Give a gift now to be the difference for children like Habtam’s.

You can help mothers grow enough nutritious food!

It’s not OK that more than 7,500 children under the age of 5 die every day as a result of malnutrition. Or that extreme poverty has made a tenth of the world’s population hopeless and hungry—many existing only on what they can produce on tiny plots of land, living on less $1.90 a day.

When you give to Food for the Hungry agriculture programs, you:

  • Help mothers grow nutritious food for their children
  • Give farmers the tools and seeds they need
  • Teach farmers how to conserve natural resources
  • Provide families with enough income to break the bonds of poverty
Your gift to Food for the Hungry’s Agricultural programs makes a profound and lasting impact on families in poverty.

Habtam’s struggle

Habtam has three beautiful girls. They live in the mountainous district of Lay Gayint in northern Ethiopia. Because she didn’t have the money to buy food, and she couldn’t grow enough in her plot’s rocky soil, her children suffered from malnutrition. She couldn’t afford the tools and seeds she needed.

But through the kindness of FH supporters, Food for the Hungry’s agriculture program was able to give her gardening tools and seeds for cabbage, Swiss chard, carrot and beet root.

In her own words, this is what your gift to Food for the Hungry can do for mothers like Habtam. With the seeds, she received training in everything from planting to compost preparation.

“…no words can explain how I’ve benefited! The vegetable products from the garden I have made with the support of FH sustained us sufficiently for about eight months. Now, I’m able to cook and feed a nutritionally rich food to my children. The health and wellbeing of my children is now far better than before. I have even bought a cow with credit and paid my debt already now. Now, we have a cow and have adequate supply of milk for our children.”
