In Mackenzie many children go hungry, for some of the most vulnerable of these children we provide a meal every day. We serve them a varied cost of : rice, beans, Nshima, groundnuts, capenta (a small dried fish) chicken, bread, eggs and vegetables.
A poor person gets 70 percent of his or her calories from grains, chiefly various forms of maize, and most of the remainder from vegetables.
The daily food consumption of a poor Zambian child with consumption level at the core poverty level:
1. One plate of Nshima.
2. A medium-sized vegetable such
as a sweet potato or tomato.
3. A few spoonfuls of oil.
4. Every 3-4 days, a small serving of chicken, beef, or fish.
5. Every 3-4 days, a piece of fruit such as a banana or mango a handful of groundnuts a couple teaspoons of sugar.
FEEDING THE CHILDREN
Your gift of 20 US$ will feed one child for a month.
Compassion for the poor and needy is the essence of our ministry, so we strive to meet the physical needs of the people as much as we can.
