FH doesn’t give charity, they give dignity

Blog post by FH blogger Darrell Vesterfelt

I have had the pleasure of spending this past week with Food for the Hungry in Guatemala. I knew I loved FH before I took this trip, but I have been blown away at the way that they help grow sustainable communities.

The best part about the work with FH is that they are not just giving charity to people in need, they are empowering people to create lasting change in their own lives and communities.FH doesn’t give handouts. They give dignity.

They allow families to be apart of contributing to their own transformation.

Below are some photos (see full post for photo slideshow) from some of the programs FH runs in the small communities. These programs include savings groups, agriculture groups and health and nutrition groups.

If you are able to partner with FH, I would highly recommend it. Ally and I sponsor a child, and have the opportunity to meet him today. Excited to share more. Stay tuned.
