For every sale a donation of food, nutritional supplements and clean water is made to children, families and communities in need.
We have chosen to work with Compassion International, a child sponsorship organization dedicated to the long-term physical, emotional and spiritual development of children living in poverty world-wide.
Everyone has the right to food and clean water; the most basic of needs. The proceeds donated with your purchase helps to nourish a mother and her child with life-saving food and fortified nutritional supplements; helping to ensure appropriate nutrition for better health and development. In addition to helping mother's and their babies, your purchase also helps the community as a whole by helping to build water wells that provide access to a safe water source. Clean water means education, income and health - especially for women and kids.
Children in impoverished rural areas often travel long distances to collect water, which is frequently contaminated. Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
You can help provide a water well that benefits hundreds of Compassion-assisted children and their families and gives them access to a safe water source. Clean water is needed for a number of daily essential activities besides just drinking; such as cleaning dishes, brushing teeth and bathing.
785 million people in the world live without clean water.
That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. Or, twice the population of the United States. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.
But access to clean water means education, income and health - especially for women and kids.
Malnutrition can be deadly, for both mothers and babies. By providing supplemental food and nutrition, you can stop the malnutrition that robs both mothers and babies of strength and energy.
By providing mothers with meals, we're giving them the strength and energy they need to be able to take care of their babies. Mothers who are still breastfeeding their babies get the added benefit of being able to pass along nutrients from food and nutritional supplements they consume, onto their babies, in addition to the food that the baby is already receiving.
