“Medicine” for Frances and Rose

“Medicine” for Frances and Rose

This Christmas season, when you donate $88, you’ll receive a beautiful handcrafted ornament. Your donation not only supports artisans, but it provides enough food to feed a child a daily meal for an entire year.

Frances and Rose, twins, were just babies when their mother thought she was going to lose them. They were so malnourished. Their mother took the twins to a local clinic, but they were soon sent home. There was nothing more to be done.

Frances and Rose’s mother was not ready to give up.

A neighbor told her to take the children to FMSC partner African Children Today (ACT). The neighbor heard ACT had medicine to treat even critically underweight children.

That powerful “medicine”: MannaPack® meals.

Several years later, Frances and Rose are thriving. ACT staff shared, “The MannaPack meals didn’t just give them life, but also gave them an opportunity to dream.”

Make this year’s Christmas gift one that matters

This Christmas season, when you donate $88 to FMSC, we’d like to give you a thank-you gift — a one-of-a-kind heart ornament handmade by artisans in Uganda and Eswatini, Africa.


FMSC's 2022 donation heart ornaments

Feed My Starving Children works with our partners around the world to acquire beautiful handmade items from artisans employed by our food distribution partners. For many of these artisans, selling handcrafts has been their only form of income through the pandemic and global economic challenges.

By selling these ornaments, local artisans are empowered to provide for their families. With this income, they can now feed their kids, send them to school and invest in a future full of hope.

When you donate $88 you will not only receive one of these beautiful ornaments, but you’ll also empower artisans and feed kids like Frances and Rose a daily meal for an entire year.

In a time of great challenges, your donation will provide greater hope.
