Since 1986, we have taken a measured, holistic approach to
helping children thrive. Together with community partners, we
lay the foundation for what is often missing in children’s lives:
good food, clean water, health care, education and a source
of family income. In doing so, local skills and opportunities
improve, families strengthen and communities progress.
Thank you for your kind support.

Whether it’s providing a good meal to a hungry child or
livestock and tools to a farming family or medicine to
save a young life, Canadian Feed The Children’s support
to families and communities results in the best possible
outcomes for children.
What a wonderful feeling it is to
be a Canadian Feed The Children
supporter. My monthly contribution
may not be a lot, but I know how
much difference it makes to children.

A lifetime of learning
With community participation, we build schools, provide
school supplies and furniture, and fund teachers’ salaries
so that students have a safe, effective environment in
which to study, learn and grow. The children provide
their own enthusiasm as they work toward new skills
and the chance to reach their full potential.
D. H., Long-time donor
Our programs uphold strong, vital principles, which have
been adapted from the United Nations Convention on
the Rights of the Child:
•
•
•
•
•
gender equality
environmental responsibility
community ownership
partnership
ethical allocation of resources
Precious health
A child’s health is far too often compromised by poverty.
To help, we provide clinics with medicines and supplies to
treat illness and disease. We provide much-needed support
to children and families affected by HIV/AIDS, and we
offer disease prevention and health protection strategies
through community and family education programs.
Vital nourishment
Hunger and malnourishment should not be an issue in this
world, but it is. Having access to health-giving food is a
child’s right that we fight to protect. Along with our
long-term projects to improve a family’s ability to feed
their children well and regularly, we provide immediate
nutrition to overcome serious malnourishment, both in
Canada and around the world.
Family support
Never does so little mean so much to children as when
struggling parents are given a head start to generate
income. Our programs give families a head start to
generate income and find the means to safeguard their
children’s health. For abandoned or orphaned children,
we help provide solace, and all the support required to
make a youngster feel safe, protected and valued.
