Problem: Global Hunger Solution: Us

We’ve seen them – photos and video clips that allow us to glimpse images representing the world’s hungry. Gaunt faces,     hopeless eyes, distended abdomens, desperate families, and dire conditions wrench our hears. We feel the urge to collect and give food and funds for the hungry. How can we become a part of the solution to the problem of global hunger?

WMU encourages men, women, and children to join together to help the hungry by giving sacrificially to the Global Hunger   Relief Fund.  WMU works cooperatively with partners to provide facts and helpful resources, encourage volunteers, gather donations, distribute funds and necessities, and tell stores of helping the hungry. Learn more about Global Hunger Relief by visiting GlobalHungerRelief.com.

What can we do to address the families, children, and babies suffering from hunger, good insecurity malnutrition, and starvation? First John 3:17-18 states, “If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”

Global Hunger Facts
In the United States, one in six people faces hunger issues. Good banks serve one in seven people.

- Close to 48.1 million people in the US live in food-insecure households.

- On a global scale, around 795 million people are undernourished.

- Throughout the developing world, 66 million primary school-age children go to school hungry.

- More than 3 million children under five die each year because of poor nutrition.

- One hundred percent of gifts to the Global Hunger Relief Fund helps alleviate hunger needs.

- Administrative and promotional costs are never supported by gifts to Global Hunger Relief. Partnerships with multiple organizations result in those costs being covered by other funds.

Return Hunger banks Sunday, August 4th.
Women on Mission will meet Monday, August 5th at 6:00 pm at the church.  All our ladies are invited to be with us.
