During the pandemic, children face the threat of not only COVID-19 but also starvation. With work opportunities disrupted, many families, especially those in already impoverished communities, are struggling just to feed their children. Malnutrition can also weaken a child’s immune system. 3
With a sense of urgency to meet children’s most basic needs, GFA missionaries and child sponsorship staff have been working hard to supply warm meals and groceries to children and their communities.
Please pray for continued provision for GFA workers to provide food to children in need, along with their families and communities. Ask God to protect children from starvation and COVID-19.
