Distributing basic staple food can have a huge effect of a families well-being.
Hungry children cannot focus on their studies, and worried parents cannot properly care for the child’s needs if there is a severe shortage of nutritional sustenance.
Abake’s Foundation can purchase local foodstuffs, and then personally deliver it to key areas where there is much suffering from hunger and malnutrition.
Several areas in Benin have been brought to our attention by both the local government, as well as concerned citizens who are heartbroken to witness large scale poverty.
There are many locations both within major West African cities, as well as much more rural villages where people go to bed hungry, without any hope for relief.
We estimate that $1USD can effectively feed one child for at least one full day.
In our “Every One Dollar” campaign, we aim to use your dollars to purchase as much domestic provisions as possible.
Food stuffs are purchased by our foundation at local wholesale markets in order to insure premium quality as well as to stimulate the local economy.
By targeting many key areas for hands on distribution we insure that the provisions are disbursed well throughout a wider area and a large number of hungry people eat.
The world hunger has become an increasingly large problem. Benin, a third world small country on the west coast of Africa is no stranger to this epidemic.
Abakes Foundation being conscious of this fact has been doing a number of relief work by giving out foods to the citizens of Benin.
On October 4th 2009 Abakes Foundation hosted an event in Cotonou to distribute food. These goods will be cooked and help feed a many people on October 11th 2009.
