The needs of the child that are being met range from basic food and nourishment to housing and school clothing. Most of these children live in areas that $1.00 per day is enough to change their lives, and that is our goal in partnering with specific non-governmental agencies around the world that focus on supporting these less fortunate children.
In the same way that we want each meal from Famfood to have an impact on your family, we want to help families across the world. We are able to accomplish this with every meal that your family purchases through Famfood.

Meet Eriel Moreno Age 4
Eriel is 4 years old and lives in Palenque, Dominican Republic. The community that Eriel lives in has a population of about 20,000 people. Eriel lives in a cement block house, with a tin roof.

MEET Oriel Valera Age 3 Oriel is 3 years old and lives in Palenque, Dominican Republic. His mother’s name is Martha and she is his primary caregiver. This is not the case in many of these homes, as the mother must work and make money, while someone else in the community may keep a group of children. The average for a family income, with both parents working in this area, is $124 per month, but Oriel’s family brings home less because only his father can work. They are very thankful for your support, so that Martha can nurture him and teach him how to stay away from the bad things that are so prevalent in this community. With your support his family can eat well and send him to kindergarten.
