The Nutritional Center at Don Bosco Ngangi provides intensive nutritional support for severely malnourished infants, toddlers and children in the Goma area. They currently serve 150 children. It costs only 2.00$ a day to feed a malnourished infant and 1.00$ a day for an older child. Since January, the World Food Bank has no longer been able to provide bulk food supplies and infant formula. Right now the center is critically low on food and may not be able to continue helping these children unless urgent assistance is received. Can you spare a dollar to feed a child for a day? Please help us continue to help these vulnerable children!
