Food for the Hungry
Living among these marginalized people we have been confronted by Jesus’s example of how he provided for the hungry crowds. We have understood from the beginning that you cannot preach to people that have not eaten for days. Therefore, we are really passionate in providing the maximum we can through this project of the mission.
Food for the school
The students at the school are fed breakfast every morning and at the end of the classes they receive lunch. They are more than 220 students plus local workers who are employed at the school that are being fed from Monday to Friday.
Breakfast depends on the available resources. The children’s favorite is when we can serve them homemade bread with jam and sweet hot tea. Lunch menus are chosen intentionally to cover their nutritional needs.
Encouraged by the word of God, KNH also takes care of the school’s orphans. They are offered a weekly package of staple foods and occasionally, depending on available resources they also receive personal use items.
Food for the villagers
Until recently the food project for the Bush-men meant providing food to the tribe. Today it has developed to be more than that.
Providing food mainly takes place in the cold season, from the end of April to the beginning of May, because during this period the locals have no food sources.
Given the size of the land-area and the large number of people in need, it is a great challenge to be able to manage the resources efficiently. Considering the 8-9 months of drought in which besides hunting or bush food, they have no other sources of food the project needs a lot of wisdom from above to manage it right.
Depending on the donations received, food packages are prepared with oil, flour, canned food and sugar. These are given to the people not only in the cold season, but also for Christmas.
One of the most special events that have been organized occasionally are the love feasts for the villages. These are the dearests to the heart of the volunteers. These events have the goal of creating deeper fellowship with the whole village thus strengthening our relationship with the Bush-men.
We desire that the food project would become self-sustainable, therefore the mission had to give birth to an agricultural project as well. This aims at encouraging and helping the locals to set up and arrange gardens for themselves in order to have their own food source.
