Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, CAM supporters provided millions of pounds of food for the hungry through the Coronavirus Crisis Care program. Although the pandemic has subsided, we continue to see a desperate need for food. This increasing cry for food is driven by the war in Ukraine, drought in East Africa, rampant inflation, and various other causes. Because of this, we transitioned from Coronavirus Crisis Care to the World Hunger Fund in 2022.
Your support of the World Hunger Fund enables us to respond to pressing food needs around the world. As our staff and contacts
distribute physical nourishment, doors open to share spiritual nourishment in Christ. After a widowed mother in Belarus received food, she exclaimed, “There is a God in the world! . . . Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
The long-term fallout of COVID-19 crippled economies in many parts of the world. The New Humanitarian reports, “COVID-19, with its lockdowns and layoffs, increased the rate of extreme poverty—those surviving on less than $1.90 a day—by an estimated 97 million people.”
The recent war between Russia and Ukraine is increasing the cost of food. These two countries are some of the world’s top producers of wheat. Grain prices are soaring! “The bullets and bombs in Ukraine could take the global hunger crisis to levels beyond anything we’ve seen before,” says David Beasley of the United Nations.
High inflation around the world is increasing food costs. For the poor, most of their income goes toward providing a most basic life necessity—food. In some countries, basic food items have doubled in price! While we may need to make minor adjustments in our food budgets due to inflation, many people will simply go hungry and some may even starve.
Join us in praying for hungry people across the globe. Pray for the many children who go to bed hungry every night.
CAM provides food parcels, staple foods, and food producing resources to people in various countries.
Where possible, CAM includes Bibles, bible story books, and other Christian literature with the food distributions.
Millions face each day wondering where their next meal will come from. Our goal is to ease their burden as funds are available. If you wish to provide food for the hungry across the globe, your contribution will be a huge blessing.
