Annual Supplemental Food Shipment - 2021
This campaign supports the initiative to send a shipping container full of nutrient-dense food to Eden Ministries Children's Village in Doma, Zimbabwe. The last shipment was sent over before the onset of the pandemic in late 2019 and no containers were sent in 2020.
Zimbabwe faces chronic food shortages and food insecurity due to a variety of challenges present in the region. Though Eden Ministries does farming to support the food supply for the children's village, this is often not enough to feed everyone and there are limited opportunities to purchase food locally.
The goal of $70,000 will support the purchase of food, a shipping container, shipment from Kansas to Doma, and all customs fees. Food will be packed by volunteers at a warehouse owned by Abbott Workholding Products located at 430 McCall Road, Manhattan, KS 66502. After the shipment arrives, the container will be used for food storage until the food supply is exhausted and it will then be repurposed.
***Volunteers are needed for packing the shipping container over December 1st-4th 2021 in Manhattan, Kansas. The Packing Project and campaign is being led by Dr. Brouk who can be reached at [email protected]***
