My life changed the day I stepped foot in Uganda. I had studied Africa, I had seen hundreds of pictures and watched several documentaries and I had read several books. But nothing prepared me for what I was about to see. Nothing prepares you for the first time you see an orphan not even two years old wandering about by herself. Nothing prepares you for talking with a new mom who hadn't eaten in four days even though she just gave birth. Nothing prepares you for the distended belly's and skinny legs of all the children who are malnourished and battling parasites.
Hunger for these children is a daily occurrence. They are truly starving. However we can do something. How many of you have seen one of those commercials that advertise starving children in Africa? You wonder where will my money go? Do these children really benefit from my donation? Do these children even exist?
$20. What costs $20 here? A weeks worth of coffee? Two movie tickets? In Uganda $20 will by you thirty meals. That is like feeding one girl for a month. You are assuring her that she will eat at least one meal a day. That is awesome! That is a blessing and that is what you can provide by purchasing a t-shirt! Come on! Let's do this!!! Let's start by at least feeding one!
