You would want someone to come alongside you, strengthen you, and partner with you to help you be the parent you want to be.
Daily we meet hungry and discouraged parents who are looking for help. They feel helpless to care for their children and are either trying to give them up, or have done it already.
When you feed a mother, support a father, encourage them, and stand with them, they stop living with the desperate fear that their children might be better off without them and they shift to working to hold onto them because now, they have hope.
Our teams understand first hand where these families are coming from and their circumstances, because they’ve been there too and have shared their pain, their struggles, and their difficulties. To families who are on the edge of falling apart they bring food, encouragement, community, friendship, counseling and access to resources.
The best place for a child to grow up is in a strong loving family.
Families are a child’s best protection against exploitation and abuse. Understanding the Problem
Pregnancy is a key moment of transition for most families. Support and education can make a vital difference in how well their child enters the world, and the quality of life for the whole family thereafter. Nutritional support for pregnant and breastfeeding women has a big impact on the long term health of children and their families.
