– August 21, 2011

A local Langley non-profit organization, The Food For Famine Society (FFF), is urgently calling on Lower Mainland residents to join its efforts to help feed children in the Horn of Africa.

The Society is asking for cash donations to help purchase supplies of individual packets of Ready-To-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF), which is used to help treat children under the age of five who are suffering from severe malnutrition. Thousands of children in Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia are suffering the effects of extreme malnutrition as a result of drought conditions in areas where rain has not fallen in any significant amount for over two years.
