FOOD FIGHT!

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day to mark our gratefulness for the love we share, to pay back the kindness we have been shown, or to pay it forward for the next generation. Today we want to make the difference for one more child in Haiti. We believe it is worth the fight!

The most critical time in a child's development is before the age of five. In Haiti, malnutrition leads to a high mortality rate in children from six months to five years of age. The overwhelming poverty and lack of sanitation leaves many children prone to suffering and, in many cases, early death. Treating cases of malnutrition early is critical for the child's survival, but also their overall growth and development.

F-100 Therapeutic Milk, From Challenge Dairy Products, Inc. in California, is a milk based powder for the treatment of these children at risk. One case of F-100 can save the life of one child. Each case is $100 and we must raise enough for 50 cases and have it shipped to Haiti.

With your help and the help of F-100, we can quickly transform a lifeless suffering child into a child with a future. For this reason, Building Arizona Families, supports nutrition programs to save the life of a child, one child at a time.

To join the fight please go to FOOD FIGHT! to make a donation. No amount is too small and every dollar will make a difference.
