Your donation to the Big Impact Appeal in 2019 helped us fight global hunger by providing immediate humanitarian relief and livelihood assistance to people who needed it the most.
Schools in South Sudan, Sudan, Jordan and DR Congo were assisted by our school feeding program.
Displaced children who could continue their education in these schools were provided with healthy, nutritious meals to encourage them to attend school and provide them with the much-needed energy to focus on their education. Parents also benefited from the employment opportunities provided by the program.
Cash or voucher transfers gave vulnerable families the ability to purchase vital food items or even support their children’s education.
Instead of simply receiving handouts and being treated as aid recipients these families find dignity in being able to conveniently purchase food of their choice from registered stores. The cash and voucher transfer system is also improving the local economy by supporting local sellers/traders.
