Cover Story: Food for Lucinia
Chances are, the new television programs will center on the charity's food programs again, because "food tends to be the most appealing item to our donors," Aloma says. "Because we started, basically, feeding the hungry. And we know that with food, they actually save lives."
Food for the Poor will also continue building homes, digging wells for clean drinking water, bringing solar-powered water purification machines to earthquake-ravaged areas of Haiti, offering education and medical assistance, and creating sustainable agriculture through projects like animal husbandry and fishing villages.
But, drilling down to the individual level and asking how Lucinia's doing, the charity provides this perspective: "When Food for the Poor representatives come across a family or a child in need, the charity makes sure their immediate and long-terms needs are met. The families and children featured in 'The Least of These' represent hundreds more just like them who have not yet been helped."
