To help meet the needs of starving children around-the-world, the Religious Conference Management Association, for the second year in a row, has donated $100,000 to fight hunger.
“Unbelievable, unbelievable!” said James T. Morris, executive director of the World Food Programme. “I'm overwhelmed with the generosity of RCMA. These funds will feed 3,000 children for an entire school year. We are so profoundly grateful to you for your ongoing support.”
Noting that 18,000 children die each day from malnutrition and hunger, DeWayne S. Woodring, CMP, CEM, executive director of RCMA, said, “Our association feels a responsibility to help those less fortunate and to minister in a tangible way to meeting their needs. Through this contribution, our members and associate members can feel they have a share in this special form of ministry.”
The humanitarian program to which RCMA contributes is one that provides food to the hungriest children through schools. “Instead of searching for food, or working, children receive a nutritious meal as well as an education, which contributes in the long term to the reduction of disease and poverty,” said Woodring.
The World Food Programme is the United Nations' frontline agency in the fight against hunger and the largest international food aid organization in the world.
