In Peru today, 2 out of 3 children live in extreme poverty, with as many as 25% of all children suffering from malnutrition. Many children in rural areas must work to help support their families.
In recent years the Peruvian Bible Society has supplied over 6,000 children with food and spiritual guidance – providing a life-saving ministry in both physical and spiritual terms.
They need you to partner with them to help meet the need again this year.
Children attend a “Bread of Life” group either before or aft er school. There they receive a nutritious, filling meal. For some children, it is the only meal of the day. They are also taught to take care of themselves by learning good habits, like discipline and cleanliness.
But providing these meals is not enough.
The children also need a message of hope and good news, which is why they are provided with a meal and the Gospel.
Each child receives a colourful Bible storybook telling them about the life of Jesus, and explaining to them that, although their lives are difficult, He loves each and every one of them.
“The Bread of Life programme is a channel of blessing for children so they can know Jesus through the Bible. When they grow up, they will remember the teachings they received each day. We wish to express our deepest gratitude on behalf of the thousands of children who have participated in this programme for the past 18 years”.
