Franciscan Milk Fund for Mission Children
For I was Hungry,
And You Gave Me to Eat,
And you Game Me to Drink.
How long is it since you were hungry? Do you know what it’s like to be ravenously hungry for a long period? It is bad enough for adults, but it’s the little children, the innocent ones, who suffer the most from malnutrition, and slow starvation.
Lack of anything like a balanced diet makes many small boys and girls, like those you know, lifelong cripples. They are marked for life before they can walk or talk. The want of fresh milk, or even milk powder, remains a crying need of mission children and their mothers.
Never getting quite enough to eat, the continued insufficient nourishment causes stunted physical growth, serious mental retardation, and leaves God’s little ones easy prey to every stray disease and infection.
Help a child today to be stronger in body and mind, better able to resist germs and parasites, and to develop the way God intended all children to grow. Please make even a small contribution to our Franciscan Milk Fund in honor of the Christ Child.
