Drought in Angola

By the time the doors open each morning at this malnutrition clinic in southern Angola, hundreds of children and parents are already in line. The clinic, run by FMSC food distribution partner ForAfrika (formerly JAM International), sees 500–700 starving children each day. And the waiting rooms stay full — all day long.

Angola’s hunger crisis is buried in the headlines. Though the country isn’t small — twice the size of Texas, if fact — you probably don’t hear about it often. But this southern African nation is quietly experiencing its worst drought in 40 years, resulting in catastrophic food insecurity.

Every day, FMSC partners like ForAfrika distribute life-sustaining MannaPack® meals to children and families in the hardest-hit regions of Angola. Children like Sarah. Sarah eats MannaPack meals at school. And when she leaves in the afternoon, the school gives her bags of FMSC food to take home to her family.

You can see the hope in Sarah’s eyes. You can even see the visible progression of health in her hair — dark and well-nourished at the root.

4,000,000,000 (that's 4 BILLION) meals!
