Food bags for those in need

Due to the restrictions in Honduras, many people are without work and cannot afford food for their families. Churri let us know of the desperate need and was able to collect staple foods to be packaged and distributed. Last weekend the young men at Casa Noble assembled over 70 bags of food (not an easy task!) and distributed them to those in need in the surrounding community. Each food bag will feed a family of four for a few weeks. We are grateful to everyone who made this possible so quickly!
