Liberia's schools see improved attendance with free meals
Summary: In Liberia many people especially students starve. The article describes a 16 year old who dreams to be a nurse so she can help her family out. She lives with her grandma who cannot afford to feed her on a daily basis. This family also shares one plate of food which means there is never enough for all of them. Organizations around the world such as Mary’s Meals are working hard to be able to provide the schools with meals. The kids of the schools are unable to work efficiently when on an empty stomach, so feeding them benefits the way they learn and their lifestyle.
Connection: During the revolutionary war many organizations such as red cross provided the necessities for those who ill and injured. This then helped the soldiers get what they need in order to keep fighting for their side. This article shows that humanitarian organizations are still needed today in order to help others in need.
Question: How can we sustain humanitarian organizations that way they can continue to help the less fortunate? Why?
