WHY SHARE A MEAL? MEET BETTY:
Mealtimes can be life-giving, comforting, sociable, even adventurous. But food can also be challenging, frustrating and unsatisfying – particularly if the meals you prepare to nourish your family just aren’t doing their job. A full belly doesn’t mean a healthy body.
Three-year-old Betty is small and quiet, with pale, thinning hair. She’s been suffering from malnutrition. Betty lives in a rural area of Uganda, with her parents and two sisters. Their home is surrounded by green hills and coffee crops, yet across Uganda one child in three is chronically malnourished. It’s not that Betty doesn’t eat. Families in the area tend to grow their own food - but always raise the same crops. So children, like Betty, aren’t getting the different nutrients their growing bodies need.
When you bring people together, when you Share a Meal together and make a donation together you and your friends will be helping to give vulnerable children like Betty exactly what they need to grow up healthy and strong.
