Churches in poor communities often lack resources to reach their community. Many church leaders face communities that believe in curses, witchdoctors and other false beliefs that lead to poverty. Food for the Hungry works with these churches to reach their community and help them overcome poverty. Church leaders are trained and supported by FH staff to start children’s ministries and assist their communities.
