Emergency Food Distributions

ERDO has received numerous requests for emergency food in areas becoming increasingly vulnerable as COVID-19 lockdowns persist. In addition to these new requests, our national partners and global workers are already running food assistance programs and distributing food while maintaining new social distance protocols.

Our goal is to expand our programs to provide children and their families with even more life-saving emergency food as this pandemic continues.

This pandemic has the potential to produce an even larger loss of lives, with lockdowns doubling acute hunger projections to a quarter of a billion people. Your donation will save lives.

Your gift will go towards programs feeding vulnerable children in crisis situations all over the world. Thank you for your generous gift.

Program Highlight

Honduras

Through global worker Kathy Mizen and Schools of Hope, ERDO is helping children in a mountainous part of the city of Tegucigalpa. The land is not good for growing food and is one of the poorest urban areas in Honduras. Families here live on two to five dollars a day, and unemployment is rampant.

In addition to children being impacted by poverty and food insecurity, the communities are plagued by gang violence. Without intervention, few children stay in school long enough to graduate from Grade 6 as they are lured into the gang subculture with offers of food and money.

To help children, we provide a daily nutritionally fortified breakfast beverage at schools. However, since schools are currently closed all over the world, children have not been receiving their in-school meals. Dedicated and faithful staff and volunteers in Honduras have been organizing food distribution to students and their families in quarantine.

Thank you for donating towards emergency food programs like the one at Schools of Hope!
