As a small charity, we want to interact with our supporters as much as possible.

Faith Foundation Projects
Hunger & Poverty

Faith Foundation funds initiatives and programs that combat hunger and food insecurity by addressing some of its root causes: poverty, natural disaster, and conflict. It is estimated that over 850 million people in the world experience hunger daily. According to the World Food Programme, "one in nearly seven people do not get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life, making hunger and malnutrition the number one risk to health worldwide-greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined."

faith foundation helping image
Although the problem seems simple in concept--we must feed the hungry--the causes are complex and the results are catastrophic. Poverty is at the core of the world hunger crisis. The regions across the world that are subjected to extreme poverty conditions are at more risk to have their terrible situation exacerbated by natural disasters and war/conflict, thereby further deepening their difficult situation. The World Food Programme states, "In short, the poor are hungry and their hunger traps them in poverty."

To address the hunger crisis, Faith Foundation will not only fund food for those in need, but also work to alleviate poverty by rebuilding communities destroyed by natural disaster or torn by conflict. This may include such initiatives as providing tools, training, education, and micro-loans to those in needs for the benefit of families and communities.

 

 

Natural disasters cause famine, hunger, and poverty in areas of the world that are already predisposed to crisis. In regions where food production and availability is only marginally sufficient to provide a sustainable food supply for its population, this precarious predicament intensifies when droughts or other natural disasters wipe out entire crops and critical infrastructure. Once a region's food production and supply has been severely degraded, it becomes increasingly necessary for that region to import food and supplies. However, many of these countries lack the funding and supportive government infrastructure that will allow for the necessary, life-saving food and supplies to be brought into the country.

Breast Cancer and Village Women's Health

Faith Foundation funds initiatives and programs pursuant to a search for a cure for breast cancer and other medical research, diagnosis and screening for other cancers and widespread health concerns such as diabetes and heart disease, and treatments for these conditions. Research, early detection and treatment of breast cancer is an area of focus for Faith Foundation. This is currently accomplished primarily by supporting research programs and funding free mammograms for low-income, uninsured, underinsured, and other disadvantaged women.

 

Globally, the problem of women's health and poverty are even more closely linked. According to a report of the Global Forum for Health Research, nearly 3 billion people live on less than $2 a day, and 70% of these poor are women. Frequently in poor health, they live in unsafe and unsanitary conditions, have the primary responsibility for caring for children and the elderly, and are often expected to perform the major tasks of family sustenance.

Children's Health and Well-Being

According to UNICEF, each day approximately 30,000 children under five years old die from preventable causes: that's 20 children per minute. In addition, child mortality is closely linked to poverty: advances in infant and child survival have come more slowly in poor countries and to the poorest people in wealthier countries. Improvements in public health services are key, including safe water and better sanitation.

Faith Foundation seeks to prevent and treat childhood illness and disease, and address other issues related to children's health and well-being, including poverty and malnutrition.

Existing programs being funded include:

 

  • Distribution of Vitamin A to strengthen young immune systems and improve resistance to common childhood diseases. Vitamin A supplementation also prevents as many as 400,000 cases of childhood blindness each year.
  • Administration of oral re-hydration formula to children with severe dehydration, a serious killer of children under five worldwide, with 1.5 billion episodes of diarrhea and four million associated deaths each year.
  • Provision of prosthesis to enable child amputees to walk and lead active childhoods. According to The No More Landmines Trust, each year at least 20,000 civilians are killed or injured by exploding landmines. It is estimated that 30 to 40 percent of all landmine victims are under age 15.
  • Restoration of lost eyesight through simple surgeries that reverse blindness caused by cataracts and trachoma. Approximately 500,000 children become blind each year. VISION 20/20 states that once becoming blind, up to 60 percent of children in low income countries are likely to die within one year.
  • Testing of pregnant mothers for HIV as a step toward preventing mother-to-child transmission of the AIDS virus. Every day, 1,500 children are infected with HIV worldwide.

Literacy and Children's Education

faith foundation children

 

According to UNESCO, over 780 million adults in the world are illiterate. On average, nearly one in three children does not complete five years of primary education, the minimum required for acquiring basic literacy.

 

The global situation is even direr. UNESCO reports that one of every five people over the age of 15 is illiterate, 64% of the world's illiterate are women, and nearly 60% of the estimated 113 million children who do not attend primary school worldwide are girls. UNICEF states, "Education, especially for girls and mothers, will save children's lives."

 

Faith Foundation is committed to supporting literacy and education through programs that provide books and other supplies, salaries for teachers, uniforms and shoes for children, and addressing the impediments to learning such as poverty and malnutrition
