Child Foundation is gearing up for its annual One Thousand Baskets for One Thousand Families campaign. The majority of the children that Child Foundation sponsors are in countries where Ramadan is nationally observed. This can be a heightened time of food insecurity for many of our communities. While Child Foundation is NOT a religious organization, we recognize that this is a time period where food baskets can make all the difference in the world for our children and their respective families.
In addition, Iran has been hit with what is considered one of the worst natural disasters in its history. Thousands of homes and villages have been destroyed due to a series of flash floods throughout the country. Afghanistan has also been recently hit with heavy rains and flooding. These natural disasters make the need for additional food packages and support even more dire. As communities work to rebuild homes, schools, and villages that have been destroyed, food packages of dry goods will allow families to feed their children and to avoid food insecurity.
This year, we estimate the cost of each food basket for a small family is approximately $25. This means that your contribution of $100 can feed four families. Regardless of nationality, religion, or culture, empathy and generosity are universal values that we can all agree on.
We urge all of our wonderful donors to support our families in this time of heightened need by sponsoring food baskets for them.
