More Full Tummies

July has been a month for wonderful pictures of smiling children with full bellies. Not only did we received the great report from our nutrition program in Huaibei, Anhui but we also received more pictures from the Humble Hearts lunch program.

The children of Humble Hearts frequently don't know where their next meal is coming from. Because of the school's lunch program, these kids know they will at least have one meal each Monday through Friday. They are each also receiving a glass of Ensure once a week to help boost their nutritional level. The smiles on these children's faces are priceless.

As July comes to a close, I begin to worry about these kids again. There is no school in August each year. Without school, food is not guaranteed.

I am fortunate enough to be going to Kenya this year. I'll be at Humble Hearts on the first day of school and would love to be able to give all of these kids a piece of fruit to welcome them back. If you would like to contribute to this cause, please go to and write "fruit" in the message section of your donation. Raising the funds to purchase 250 pieces of fruit leads to the problem of how I will carry it all to the school....a problem I look forward to having!
