REFUGEE & AT-RISK COMMUNITIES (RAC) PROGRAM

For those displaced or in at-risk communities

In 2017 Sanku began a Refugee & At-risk Communities (RAC) program to address this growing population of innocent children and families that represent the very poorest of the poor.

REFUGEE & AT-RISK COMMUNITIES (RAC) PROGRAM

For those displaced or in at-risk communities

In 2017 Sanku began a Refugee & At-risk Communities (RAC) program to address this growing population of innocent children and families that represent the very poorest of the poor.

Today’s world refugee population now exceeds that of World War II—innocent families displaced due to violent conflict that has forced them to escape persecution or genocide.

Those that are able to escape, find themselves confined to camps and centers. Largely forced to fend for themselves in ghettos that do little more than provide them safety from military aggression, they are principally on their own to survive and raise and educate their children – which includes the daily struggle to access nutritious food for their children.

Until it is safe for them to return to their homes, they deserve to be taken care of.

A nutritious meal is a meaningful beginning.

Just as troubling, over 220 million children are trying to survive in at-risk communities world wide, and 700,000 are in the Kibera area in Nairobi, Kenya. The size of New York’s Central Park, one million people live in a neighborhood where on average there is only one single shared toilet for every 50 families. Children often go through their days without food, running water, organized health care, and in most cases basic education.

In 2017 we will expand our partnered program with the World Food Program within the Kenyan Kakuma Refguee Camp school feeding program, currently reaching 70,000 children. Our aim is to reach 1 million refugees by 2020, and an additional 2 million at-risk people living in communities similar to Kibera.

These children may be largely forgotten…but their situation is not hopeless.

Through programs like SHOFCO and others, these children and their parents are increasingly being provided a chance at an education and a healthy life.

But without good nutrition, they cannot fight the illnesses that prevent them from attending school and becoming productive members of the community.

Their parents want a better life for their children, and we can help by making sure they begin the day with healthy and nutritious food.

Support our efforts.
