I don’t talk about it much but when I was a child, there were times when my family had a hard time making ends meet. I don’t think we were ever really in danger of going hungry, but as a child I felt like we were. Now, as an adult, I know it’s resulted in a bit of a complex where food is concerned. I literally have enough food and water in our house at any given time that my family could survive for a couple of months if need be. That fear of going hungry is something that I still remember and I don’t ever want my children to feel that way.
Speroway, formerly Feed the Children Canada, knows how important it is for children to have the necessities of life: food, clothing, medical care and shelter. It’s not just a physical thing; worrying about having basic needs met places constant stress on a child and makes proper emotional growth very difficult too. That’s why this amazing charity has been helping to nourish both the bodies and the souls of needy children across the globe.
Speroway has so many great programs to assist needy children. The best-known program is probably Feed-A-Child, a campaign that provides food to poverty-stricken children in 32 countries around the world. But Speroway also has a number of other incredible initiatives including its Child Champions program, an Abandoned Baby Centre and the First Nations program. I love the fact that the organization doesn’t just support children in other countries but also provides support to First Nations children right here in Northern Canada! And right now, Speroway is focusing their efforts on building a medical clinic for orphans in Haiti.
