Six months after the outbreak of Covid-19, we are still experiencing how the virus affects the world at large. We are now seeing how this virus has dangerously increased the issues of food insecurity across the globe.
The World Food Programme (WFP) has issued warnings that “the world faces ‘multiple famines of biblical proportions’ that could result in 300,000 deaths per day – after the Covid pandemic now a hunger pandemic’”.
It looks like 265 million people will be facing acute hunger over the next 6 months.
At Metro World Child, we had to figure out how to respond to the hunger crisis on a long term basis and see that even more children are fed during these difficult times.
Every sponsored child in Kenya receives life-sustaining meals through Metro’s WON BY ONE program. It's not about helping in the short term - that’s not what we do. That’s why our sponsorship program is so critical. Especially right now.
GOAL: 4,000 children signed up for sponsors before Christmas
HOW CAN YOU BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION?
Become a child sponsor ambassador: Reach out to your friends and family, or even colleagues, and share your child sponsorship experience.
Explain what having a sponsor means to a child in Kenya: Not only will they get the Word of God, a sponsor child will also receive enough food to sustain them on a daily basis. This will literally save lives in this pandemic!
Use your influence: Share about this campaign on your social media platforms, Whatspp, Telegram, WeChat etc.
You never know who you might reach. Every child sponsored is a child saved from a desperate situation.
IT’S SIMPLE AND IT’S EASY TO BE A "WON BY ONE" ADVOCATE!
