Here's what "typical" meals look like for the kids at the Remand Homes.
And I say "typical" because that's if they have water.
And they only have water if they have electricity.
And the kids at M1 haven't had electricity for 3 weeks.
That means they haven't had running water for 3 weeks.
That means they have to walk a mile up the hill with their jerry cans to fetch water.
And a mile back down the hill.
But back to the food...
For breakfast, they have porridge.
Think of Cream of Wheat made with 3 cups extra water.
For their lunch/dinner (served around 3 pm), they have posho
and, if they are blessed, beans.
Each and every day.
Except on select Saturdays
and buy food for a Saturday "party".
The children then get some meat or fish, rice, and a fruit or vegetable.
Our dear friend, Lovelyn, is raising money to host a Saturday Party at 3 of the 7
Remand Homes in which SixtyFeet works.
Think you can help Lovelyn out with the parties tomorrow?
Even a couple of dollars will provide a healthy meal for several children.
And, don't you know, even prisoners have a right to healthy food.
