Food for the Hungry
The brothers continue to serve over 275 families three meals a day out of their soup kitchen, not including the disabled children; those that can bring food to workers in the quarry when there is enough. The brothers also have a small school for 100 children, whom they provide food for, and a medical dispensary where they serve the poor every weekend. Their resources are often strained and when there is not enough food they choose to go without food for themselves in order to feed the families. The brothers not only care for the poor – they live among them, share in their poverty, and serve them with the love of Christ.
When there is not enough food for the community the Missionaries of the Poor brothers go without. Your generosity to the mission in Kenya ensures they do not go to bed hungry.
Today, you can start setting aside $2 a day to continue helping to provide food for the families, disabled children, and orphans the missionary brothers care for.
The goal in assisting the brothers is to help them provide for 100 more people until the summer when crops are ready to be harvested. For $61 a month this can be a reality. To care for 100 more people for the next six months, we need your help and generosity to raise $36,600. This not only provides for the parents that will be working hard to harvest come summer and fall, but for the small children who cannot work due to a disability, who have been abandoned by their families.
Pope Francis boldly calls us to serve the hungry and malnourished daily, “It is a scandal that there is still hunger and malnutrition in the world! It is not just a question of responding to immediate emergencies, but of addressing together, at all levels, a problem that challenges our personal and social conscience, in order to achieve a just and lasting solution.”
