African orphan meals on two dollars a day

Lesotho orphans pray the Lord's Prayer together
before receiving their one hot meal for the week.

Identifying with the least of these

Item: 75 percent of Sub-Saharan Africans live on two dollars a day or less.
Item: 56 percent of Lesotho adults live in two dollars a day or less.

In praying for Lesotho orphan intervention, where the number of AIDS orphans is exploding at one of the highest rates in the world, an American couple decided that they would live on two dollars a day per person for a week, and send the rest of that week's food budget to the Lesotho orphans. It’s a great investment, because each dollar sent counts for seven, and feeds multiple orphans.

The result is a no lose situation: givers function on the same household budget while needy orphans gain the difference in food.

If you would like to participate in this unique fundraising experience, please do so.
