3 billion human beings live in absolute poverty, on less than $2 a day. 800 million people, many of these children, suffer chronic malnutrition. Every day 20,000 children age 5 or under die from hunger or hunger-related causes. These harsh realities face millions each day, unrelentingly. Enacting our mission to enhance the quality of life for all members of the global community, FCF Project Partners work hard to bring both short-term relief and long-term solutions.
Some of our projects that support food and other aid
Helping Hand has been operational in Capetown since 1999, delivering food, clothing and educational materials to local soup kitchens for disadvantaged children, homes for the unwed and abused mothers, clinics for HIV/AIDs patients, as well as to orphanages throughout the greater Cape area.
Family Care Lebanon is a charitable project staffed by volunteers with the mission to try to make the world a better place by promoting volunteerism in community service opportunities. (Family Care Lebanon is a Registered Charity in Lebanon, Ministry of the Interior for Lebanon, # 121/AD.) The relief work of Family Care Lebanon intensified in the wake of recent wars, providing urgent basic supplies for displaced and refugee families.
MexMission (in Mexico City and Puerto Vallarta) has two main programs: “Laughter Therapy” (“Riso terapia” in Spanish) for young cancer patients, and providing assistance to orphanages operated by Madre Ines, known as the “Mother Teresa of Mexico City” for her work with orphans and street children.
Vietnam, known for the strength and resilience of its people, is rebounding, following a long history of war and suffering. However, as much as half the current population of 90.5 million live on less than $2 a day, and many of them on less than $1. There is still a great need for assistance for the poor, disadvantaged and disabled.
Proyecto Rescate is a non-profit organization based in Monterrey, Mexico. Established in 2002 as a grass-roots endeavor, its mission is to relieve the suffering of children and youth who are entrenched in poverty, delinquency, social decline, drug addictions, depression or insecurity, and create a chain reaction of positive social change.
