Everyday life for some is searching through trash bins for something to eat. Mihaela (real name withheld) is a prostitute. She says, “I’m out all day I may earn up to £10. Some days I can be out all day and earn nothing” She eats and feeds the children from scraps found on a rubbish tip. She fetches a bag, its full of discarded slices of bread covered in mould and black with dirt. She hopes to make some simple soup with it.
Whilst all mums are not like Mihaela, they do struggle every day to find food for their children. The feed a child scheme is providing regular hot meals for children but it doesn’t stop there. With your support, we provide a place of safety, a place to go where they can learn hygiene, social skills and experience the love of a community.
