Families living in poverty throughout the Caribbean and Latin America are enduring even more hardships as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Food For The Poor’s Christmas Gift Catalog is filled with gift ideas to ease their suffering and continue giving long after the holidays have passed.
As the global pandemic makes finding food difficult in the countries where the charity serves, a gift of rice and beans can be lifesaving. For $40, you can provide 100 pounds of rice and beans or feed a child for a year for $73.
For $114, you can provide a family with a sewing machine and an opportunity to earn income. These sewing machines are equipped to operate either by electricity or by foot pedals. And for as little $10, you can give a child a soccer ball for Christmas, because every child deserves a toy.
“Selecting the perfect gift can be a challenge, but when you choose a gift from the Food For The Poor Christmas Gift Catalog you’ll be helping families in dire need for weeks, months or even years to come,” said Angel Aloma, Food For The Poor Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. “A gift of a cow or chickens are valuable sources of income that can bring about real change.”
Food For The Poor provides families living in poverty with necessities such as food, water, and housing. The charity also is committed to breaking the cycle of poverty by providing children with an opportunity to get an education and by developing micro-enterprise opportunities so their families can earn an income.
The 2020 gift catalog is available at FoodForThePoor.org/giftcatalog.
