Hambre - Hunger

What Can Be Done?

While searching the web for information on water, I came across a blog in Spanish. I found the picture of the little girl on the left; the name of the picture had the word, "hambre." I googled the word and found a page on it. I clicked to translate it into English. It came up, "hunger." That page had the picture of the little girl on the right. I have two daughters, and I just could not imagine not having had enough food to feed them when they were little. My heart is breaking over here. I so badly want to find this little girl and give her food and clothing and hugs and raise her, love her, and care for her. What can be done? Can regular people like you and I do anything about the hungry children?

Follow-up: The above article received a variety of comments by email and on a news site Putting all of the comments together, I have reached a conclusion to my question. Yes, something can be done. First, we must help right in our own commnunities, through our church and local "Bread and Thread". And a great organization for outside of the U.S. is: Compassion International.

Mt 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me:
for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
