As we begin to observe the season of Lent this Ash Wednesday, let us intensify our desire to practice prayer, fasting, and works of mercy both corporal and spiritual. One way we can exercise this is to support HAPAG-ASA Feeding Program for hungry and malnourished children. See details below on how you can help.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a reminder for all of us to answer God's call to pray, fast, and do acts of charity. If we fast and let the poor, hungry and malnourished children benefit from it, we relive what Jesus said, "I was hungry and you gave me something to eat." By donating whatever we save from fasting to HAPAG-ASA Integrated Nutrition Program, we feed a poor, hungry and malnourished child.
HAPAG-ASA feeds hungry and malnourished children 6 months to 12 years old once a day, 5 days a week for 6 months with nutritious food. Apart from the supplemental feeding, parents are also provided with basic knowledge, skills and values to improve their capacity to care for their children and livelihood and skills training to give them access to employment and income generating activities.
In the last nine years, HAPAG-ASA has already fed about 1.5 million children. But there's a lot more to reach since based on the 2013 8th National Nutrition Survey of the Food and Nutrition Research Institute, about 8 million Filipino children are still underweight and stunted.
HAPAG-ASA appeals to you for help in feeding our hungry and malnourished children by donating to HAPAG-ASA's FAST2FEED fund campaign. It only takes P10 a day or P1200 for six (6) months to feed one child.
