Weekend Fund-drive: Subscribe to Smiles

Vijay K Narayan of My Dhaba food blog is requesting us all to donate smiles through the Feed a Hungry Child (FAHC) fund-drive. FAHC operates on the principle that all children are entitled to a decent meal. Children who do not get proper meals are unjustly put in this condition. These children did not choose their parents nor are they responsible for their parents’ financial condition. FAHC addresses the ultimate holistic need, the hunger of each child it supports, and believes that illiteracy, malnutrition, and other concerns can only be addressed when hunger is appeased.

With the help of volunteers, FAHC has begun to supply feeding kits to 14 children and their families in Palakkad district of Kerala in India, since April 2007. Now FAHC needs our help. The fundraising goal is $ 3,360. I think we can do it easily. Please click the Chip In button at the top right of the site, and contribute whatever you can. If you require additional incentive to contribute, check out the contents of feeding kit and try to remain unmoved.

  3. Hi Indira,

    It makes me so sad just to think that small children donot have the basic food to eat.
    I really appreciate the people who come forward to raise these fund drives.

    I just made my humble contribution, I hope more people will participate and help the FAHC reach their goal.

  4. Hi Indira,

    I read your blog often as I love cooking and am South Indian, but I don’t comment much if at all. This is a great cause - it reminded me of an NGO that I have been doing a lot of work for recently called the Akshaya Patra Foundation. Check out their program at www.foodforeducation.org. They feed school children for ~13 cents/meal or US$28 per year.

  5. Many thanks for your thoughtful initiative and great support Indira. Appreciate all your time and efforts devoted for the cause. Have you noticed this? Funds are now pouring in at PayPal/ChipIn. All prayers that FAHC will achieve its modest goal of $3360 for this year. Look forward to October 15th -the “Subscribe To Smiles” day.
