Meet Relebohile - one of the 'sons' in our ACFS family

Relebohile is a third year BSc student from Johannesburg. And, like any family, we're very proud of him!

Because as a boy, his future looked bleak. His family was destitute – and his single mother struggled to feed him.

Relebohile grew up on our famous peanut butter sandwiches ... paid for by caring people like you. And just look at him now!

Relebohile managed to get funding for university and is excelling in his studies in mathematical science. Soon he'll be qualified and able to help take care of his younger brothers and sisters.

All thanks to people like you!

By feeding him as a child, you helped him learn. And because of that learning, his life took a completely different direction.

Knowing how your kindness today can impact on a child's future – please will you give another child a chance today? Your donation – made online right now – would make the most wonderful Christmas gift .... a gift that will last a lifetime!

Donate

Donations from people like you enable us to provide peanut butter sandwiches and milk to 14500 starving children and youth in Jo'burg townships each day. Humble as they are, these simple meals are literally a lifeline.

"After we joined ACFS I rarely went to sleep on an empty stomach," Relebohile says. "ACFS played a huge role in fighting poverty and hunger in our family."

Even his mother benefited from AFS. When she enrolled her children in our feeding programme, she started attending our sessions of health education, and learned income-generating skills like sewing and food gardening.

It empowered her to take charge of her life and support her children.

So please will you send your Christmas gift today to help more children break the cycle of poverty? Because children who are well nourished learn more. And children who learn more, earn more later!
