Creative Ideas Bring Smiles

Along with concerns about health and food, quarantine can bring boredom and even depression.

Feeding the Heart, a sardine dish

Our Child Champions are still delivering much-needed food but are also finding creative ways to meet the emotional needs of children and their families. In India tutors are sending small contests to the children by text message. The first child to respond with the right answer wins “virtual” candy that can be redeemed for the real thing when their Hope Centers reopen. In Nicaragua, Hope Centers have delivered beautiful “Educational Surprise Boxes” to the children. Each box contains activity booklets and school supplies to encourage children to keep up with their studies at home. In the Philippines, some Hope Centers were able to provide a small battery-powered radio to help children ward off boredom. Because emergency food rations often contain tins of sardines, they also challenged parents to make the “Most Creative Sardine Dish” and were amazed at the results.

We are accountable to the children we serve AND to our donors.

Our accountability to our donors is one of our highest priorities. Our goal is to use the funds entrusted to us as wise stewards. To do this requires continued monitoring of our fund distribution.
