Dear Denise, President, San Marino Rotary Club,
Thanks for joining us in the fight against hunger. We are happy to share details at the end of this email about the destination of your meal shipment.
The meals you packaged will make a big impact in the lives of people around the globe. My, age 6, lives in a community where unpredictable droughts and flooding create instability for many farming families. Her family struggles to afford food, typically eating just two small meals each day. Although life is difficult for them, My is a very cheerful, lively child.
Since receiving Rise Against Hunger meals at school, My’s physical health and academic performance have improved greatly. She hopes to become a doctor so she can help those in need.
My is only one of the tens of thousands of children in countries all over the world who receive Rise Against Hunger meals at school. Since 2005, volunteers like you have helped package more than 310 million meals for distribution to 74 countries.
To provide support for children like My around the globe, please consider making a gift at www.riseagainsthunger.org/donate.
We are delighted to announce that the meals from your meal packaging event on 4/14/2017 have been shipped in a container totaling 282,312 meals from our Southern California warehouse. If this is the second email you have received, your meals have gone to impact multiple partners.
The meals will be received by our in-country partner Salesian Missions in Cambodia.
Supported by the Salesians, the Don Bosco Foundation of Cambodia operates several technical training centers designed to provide students with vocational skills to broaden their economic opportunities. Young adults apply to receive two years of intensive training in agriculture, automotives, office administration, IT, and more. Rise Against Hunger meals will be distributed to over 4000 students attending the technical training centers.
