The Emmanuel Children’s Home is regularly supported by our Church Feeding Programme. The home which is run by the New Kanyama Assembly, cares for 240 orphaned and vulnerable children. 12 of these children are housed at the facility while the rest come from their homes for school. These children come to school hungry and usually the corn soya blend is the only food they eat, so the school feeding program has had massive impact on their academic performance and health. The CSB from ShareAfrica is the main meal for their lunch break.
Providing meals for the children who live at the facility is a great challenge, the resources are so limited, and the corn soya blend is often the only food available. The Elders from Kanyama Assembly are always sending thank you messages on behalf of the children. They say the help they receive goes a long way in feeding the orphaned and vulnerable children.
