  • Title: Canadian Foodgrains Bank - Hunger
    Descriptive info: What is hunger?.. When we think of hunger, we often think of images of skeletal children during a famine or drought.. Unfortunately, this type of acute hunger exists.. It is the result of being without food for an extended period of time, due to an emergency like conflict or a natural disaster.. But only about one of eight cases of hunger in the developing world is like this.. More often, hunger is the result of having not enough food to eat, over a long period of time, or not eating sufficiently nutritious food.. This kind of hunger is less visible, slowly affecting people over time.. When not enough food is consumed, the body is undernourished.. It compensates by slowing down its physical and mental activities.. Without enough food, people cannot concentrate at school or work.. They don’t have the energy they need for physical work.. And since it weakens the immune system, hunger also makes people vulnerable to disease.. Undernourishment is particularly harmful for women and children.. Undernourished children do not grow as quickly as healthy children, and they develop more slowly mentally.. Mothers who are undernourished often give birth to underweight and weak babies, and face increased risk of death themselves.. Sadly, millions of  ...   insecurity—helping people who don’t have enough to eat to find ways to provide more food in the longer-term..

    Descriptive info: Friday, July 13, 2012.. $9.. 7 million committed to help 257,000 people in Niger, Mali, and Burkina Faso.. A year ago, the world watched as a food crisis unfolded in East Africa.. What seemed like non-stop media coverage throughout the summer prompted millions of Canadians to respond to help people in Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia caught by drought, conflict, and famine.. The Foodgrains Bank responded, providing over $18 million of assistance to 587,000 people in that region in the 2011/12 fiscal year, through its member agencies and their international partners.. Another food crisis is unfolding today, this time in the Sahel region of West Africa.. This time, however, there has been little media attention—despite the fact that over 18 million people face food shortages due to drought and late and erratic rains that have crippled harvests.. When Foodgrains Bank Executive Director Jim Cornelius visited the Sahel region in May, he saw that grain bins were already empty—people had used up the little they were able to grow.. “Until the next harvest in fall, they will need help to survive,” he says.. The Foodgrains Bank is responding to this crisis through its member agencies and their partners.. A total of $9.. 7 million is already committed to programs in  ...   “Hunger is the biggest sickness you can have,” she said, pointing at her body.. “My body is not supposed to look like this..

Fortunately, people like Yapoa and David are receiving help through the Foodgrains Bank.. Many more are living close to the edge; funds donated this summer will help keep them from falling over the edge.. After his visit to the region, Cornelius says he has “little doubt that our response is essential.. The food we are providing will not only help meet their immediate food needs, but also helps stop them from sliding into deeper impoverishment in the future..

  • Title: Canadian Foodgrains Bank - News & Events
    Descriptive info: Thursday, July 12, 2012.. By John Longhurst.. Compared to life for many people in the developing world, most Canadians have it pretty easy.. Want water? Turn on the tap.. Hungry? Open the fridge.. Cold in winter? Turn up the heat.. Because these things are so normal, it’s easy to forget how special they are—and how blessed we are to take them for granted.. Remembering these blessings is made s a little easier for staff at Canadian Foodgrains Bank because of people like Lieketseng Phooko of Lesotho.. Lieketseng—also known as Keke—spent the last ten months with us as an intern through the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) International Volunteer Exchange Program.. While in Canada, she travelled across the country making presentations about food and hunger issues in Lesotho to schools, churches and other groups.. Altogether, she spoke almost 100 times to over 6,000 people.. During her travels, Keke made many new friends, always expressing her appreciation for the warm hospitality and generosity of Foodgrains Bank supporters.. “I was blessed to visit so many people,” she says, adding that she really enjoyed visiting farms.. One thing that always struck her, though, was how easy life is in Canada—compared to life back in Lesotho.. Take water, for example.. “Back home, we need to walk to a communal tap to get water,”  ...   an impression, she will take away many other memories of her time in Canada—especially the friendships she developed.. “People in Canada are so friendly,” she says, adding she was also impressed by how willing people were to learn more about her country, and also by how they gave to the Foodgrains Bank to assist people in Lesotho and other parts of the developing world.. “People are very generous,” she says.. Of her assignment, she says : “I really liked it a lot because it challenged me.. I learned how to present in front of many people.. I learned lots of things I will take back with me to Lesotho.. After her return, Keke will work for Growing Nations Trust, a conservation farming organization supported by the Foodgrains Bank.. “I pray that the Lord will use me for good,” she says.. For people at the Foodgrains Bank, that prayer has already been answered.. Keke’s infectious enthusiasm for the work of helping farmers in Lesotho improve their lives left a positive and powerful impression on many.. At the same time, her presence reminded those of us who worked with her how blessed we are—and how lucky we are to be able to share our blessings with others.. John Longhurst directs the Resource Public Engagement Department at the Foodgrains Bank..
