We want to say a massive thank you to our ever-generous Sonshine family as you partnered with us to Take Away Hunger last week.
Thursday 24th August was our first ever Take Away Hunger Day, in partnership with Feed The Hungry, a Christian Non-Profit Charity dedicated to feeding the poor and hungry around the world. For just $6 we gave you the opportunity to feed a refugee child in Uganda for a whole month – these children, without Feed The Hungry’s help, didn’t know where their next meal was coming from!
Uganda is currently hosting one and a half million refugees from surrounding countries, most of them from South Sudan which has been in a civil war for decades. Ben Evans, CEO of Feed the Hungry, shared that all the children they feed have faced terrible hardships.
“They fled for their life. And I’ve met many, many, many children who have seen their parents killed in front of them through this journey. So they arrived in Uganda just absolutely shattered.”
What did we achieve together?
In true Sonshine family fashion you heard the call for help and responded in an amazing way! At the start of our first Take Away Hunger Day we set a target of feeding 5,000 children by day’s end, and you blew us away! Thanks to your incredible generosity we were able to feed 8,193 children!
Your donation will also provide much more than a meal. “We actually provide these meals in a school environment. So we’re encouraging these children to come and get an education, because that will help them get out of the poverty cycle, and help them build a better future.”
Thank you for helping us take away hunger. If you missed Take Away Hunger Day and would still like to help, it’s not too late. Click here and support Feed The Hungry today.
