Instead of feeding just rice porridge, we are now feeding vegetables, beans, potatoes, and relish as well as rice and their staple food nsima (maize). Kids get a more nutritious meal now, every day!
Costs all over Malawi have been steadily rising and seem to have peaked (I hope!). Even a gallon of gas (when you can get it) is now up to about $8 a gallon. When the pumps are out of fuel, which is quite often, you can expect to pay up to $20 for a gallon of gas on the black market!
While just 2 years ago I could buy 100 pounds of rice for $35, it now costs nearly $70! Prices of vegetables have also gone up. While we used to be able to feed a child for just over $5, it now costs just under $10 to feed a child for a month.
Please consider donating to feed these kids!
