As I stepped out of my car in the Food for the Hungry (FH) parking lot this morning, city noise surrounded me.

In the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), some children are so hungry they have trouble concentrating on their lessons in school. Oftentimes, they may go for days without food. Although the children are eager to learn, the pain that accompanies malnutrition makes it difficult to concentrate. Breakfast, which we take for granted, is not even […]
