There has come an immediate and pressing need for your assistance. We have a team on the ground helping to bring aid to small villages in the very center of a conflict zone. We were able to speak directly with those impacted regarding needs and the request has been for small, portable, stores of food rather than large bags of rice. Due to the nature of the conflict, the people we are aiding live with a backpack ready to leave at a seconds notice. Portability is key to their survival and making sure the food is not being wasted or used inappropriately. In this specific need we are seeking to assist approximately 60 households. To do so we have determined a need for $3,000 in a very short time to purchase the necessary supplies.
