“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27


In order to meet this need in an efficient way, UCI created feeding centers where children and families are able to come and receive a meal during the week. Children who previously relied on eating the ashes from the fire to fill their stomachs are being provided a nutritional meal 3 to 4 times a week. These centers have also provided opportunities to teach the parents to plant their own gardens and receive female goats as an investment opportunity. There are 9 nutrition centers in 9 communities.

Our nutrition centers provide :

  • Health teaching

  • Garden education

  • Clothes distribution

  • Evangelical opportunities to spread the gospel to the whole family

Merely handing out food has provided opportunities to share the gospel and to talk about how God’s word. By sponsoring a nutrition center you can provide food to children who would otherwise go hungry.

  • $300 per month feeds 30-40 children 4 times per week

  • The message of Christ is shared with children from the nutrition center
