It was announced this week that the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference has formed a strategic partnership with Food for the Hungry (FH). The NHCLC, known as the Hispanic Evangelical Association, the nation’s largest Christian Hispanic organization, underscores its Justice directive through its partnership with FH by working through the Church to alleviate poverty.
Food for the Hungry is a Christian organization serving the poor globally since 1971. They reflect the love of Christ in short-term emergency relief and long-term work to end world hunger.
Through the Food for the Hungry child sponsorship program, which includes consistent monthly support, letters, and prayers, a relationship is built that ministers to both the child and the sponsor and develops life-changing relationships. The sponsored child’s community is impacted at the same time and also experiences lasting change.
Food for the Hungry offers sponsorships for $32 a month that help to prevent children from suffering diseases, dehydration, hunger, abuse and even death - and works to alleviate poverty and lower statistics that reveal 1.4 billion people living in poverty.
